Since 2002, .coop has been the way to locate and
identify cooperatives on the Internet.
.Coop is the only domain that is reserved for cooperatives and
cooperative organizations that are guided by cooperative values and
principles as defined in the Cooperative
Principles of the International Cooperative Alliance (ICA), such as member
ownership and control.
DotCooperation LLC (dotCoop), the sponsor of the .coop
domain, is a wholly owned subsidiary of the National
Cooperative Business Association (NCBA) and defines and implements
eligibility and verification policies for use of the exclusive
cooperative domain. Midcounties Cooperative Domains Ltd
(MCD), is a wholly owned subsidiary of Midcounties Cooperative,
Ltd and is responsible for the operation and maintenance of
.coop's technical environment.
These progressive cooperative organizations provided
support to help establish the .coop domain and they continue
to work with dotCoop to provide valuable input as well
continuing to promote the use of the .coop domain.
