Interlink Co., Ltd., the official operator of the .Earth domain registry, today celebrates the two-year anniversary of the public launch of the .Earth top-level domain (TLD) by pledging to make a real-world impact by planting one tree for each new .Earth domain name that is registered online.
In partnership with Mossy.Earth, the .Earth registry will plant one tree for each new .Earth domain registered from November 15th to December 31st. Click http://go.earth/mossy to secure your own .Earth domain and support this noble cause.
Mossy.Earth is a social enterprise whose aim is to deliver environmental change and make a positive impact on the state of the planet's wildernesses and forests. Additionally, every tree planted will include a unique photo and GPS coordinate and photo to ensure full transparency.
“The .Earth domain registry is all about helping individuals and organizations focused on making Earth a better place to share their ideas and vision online,” said Jacob Williams, Interlink General Manager of Domain Services. “This collaboration with Mossy.Earth helps us bring these visions to the real world. We are excited to mark our second anniversary with a reforestation initiative, which is the ultimate gift for Earth.”
Planting trees helps create carbon sinks that play a crucial role in fighting global warming. What is more, the forest planted through this project is composed of native species and will help re-wild areas of the International Douro Natural Park in Portugal burned by the 2017 summer wildfires. This project goes beyond simple tree planting by actively seeking to rebuild self-sustaining wild ecosystems through the re-introduction of native animal species.
In addition, to commemorate this anniversary, several registrar partners are offering special pricing for new one-year registrations of standard .Earth domain names starting at under $12.00 USD/year.
The .Earth domain creates a unique place that unites like minds—whether it be brands or individuals—and allows them to promote their passions, causes, businesses, brands or stories for the overall betterment of life for all.
From environmental activists to NGOs and even geospatial companies, a wide-range of global organizations have embraced .Earth domain names as a strategy for enhancing their overall missions, business models, and online branding.
