    When LPSG was created and then found a home, why was it made a .org and not a net or com? Was it a humored approach of indications of hope for org-asms to be achieved here?

    .org always makes me think of orgasm. But that's me.

    it is kinda weird because as I understand it, the .com's are for sites that make money, and the .org's are for the sites that don't, wherever the .net come into this theory I've no idea, it's just what my dad told me (who happens to be a massive dick now :biglaugh:)

    I thought it was because this site was made as a sort of joke, so i assume .org gave a sort of official, medical-like sound to it?

    I think that's probably right.

    If I understand it correctly, .com, .org, .net originally stood for commercial, organisation and network respectively. The first is self-explanatory, the second had to do with non-profit organisations (or non-commercial sites in general), and the last was meant for organisations that had to do with networking technologies.

    That whole system fell apart when folks started cross-registering domains (greedy mofos). And now, anything goes.

    So methinks .org was chosen either because .com was taken, or simply because they wanted to be different (.com is by and far the most popular). Or perhaps even for its original purpose-- the site may be old enough, afterall.

    Essentially correct.

    The top-level domains are intended to categorize the usage of the various network segments they label.

    .com is for commercial usage
    .org is for non-profit usage
    .gov and .mil are for US government and military use
    .net is for internet and other network service providers
    .edu is for colleges and secondary school usage

    However, .com, .net and .org are all open TLDs, meaning any person or entity can register sites within those namespaces irrespective of their original intent.

    If you'd really like to know why .org was chosen for this site, ping Mister Mark and ask him.
    :biggrin1:



    EDIT: Interestingly, the owner also has possession of the .net registration as well. Browsing to LPSG.net results in a 301-redirect to this .org URL.
