  1. coop

    The domain coop is a sponsored top-level domain in the Domain Name System of the Internet. It is intended for the use of cooperatives, wholly owned subsidiaries, and other organizations that exist to promote or support co-operatives. The coop TLD was proposed by the National Cooperative Business Association as a response to the announcement by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers in late 2000 of a phased release of seven new generic top-level domains in an expansion of the Internet domain name space. The proposal was backed by many cooperatives and similar trade groups around the world, including the International Co-operative Alliance. The technical infrastructure for the coop TLD was developed by the worker cooperative Poptel in the United Kingdom and became operational on January 30, 2002. The domain's sponsoring organization is DotCooperation LLC, which is a wholly owned subsidiary of the National Cooperative Business Association. DotCooperation is responsible for the TLD operation, including the enforcement of registration requirements. In 2005, the Midcounties Co-operative assumed operation of the domain registry through a subsidiary unit. DynDNS was contracted as the sole DNS provider for the registry in 2006.
