.Coop is the only internet domain that is reserved for cooperatives and cooperative organizations that are guided by cooperative values and principles, such as member ownership and control. DotCoop currently has 4498 registrants of .coop domains, providing cooperatives a way to differentiate their businesses from a sea of .coms and add value to their web site.
DotCoop was set up in 2001 by the Midcounties Cooperative to manage the .coop TLD through a subsidiary – Midcounties Co-operative Domains. In 2012, Midcounties Co-operative Domains became Domains.coop, a wholly owned subsidiary of the ICA. Domains.coop Ltd is headquartered in Oxford, UK.
