Originally the three original domain names that were available to the public (.gov, .edu, and .mil weren't, and still aren't) were .com, .net, .org.
The .com meant "commercial". So typically for business. .net was for "network" and tended to be what the ISPs gravitated towards. And .org stood for "organization." Non-profit organizations often went for that top level domain.
You don't HAVE to go for the .org, but if the .com is gone you can just grab the .org and it looks as if it's what you would have wanted in the first place anyway.
well, i think they'd (more than likely) be searching for the full name and what you offer on the site. however, if an administrator happens by because of the "adhmin", who knows... you may get some random donations? just a thought.
If you really want to do charity work I dont think a domain name matter much, unless you look forward to make money for yourself at some point of time in future from that site. e.g. monster.com is a job site!
Cool. That's good! Plus, your experience in business will be invaluable. I've been trying to guess on my own whether it is a smoother move to go from a not-for-profit to a for-profit enterprise or the reverse (since I have more experience with non-profits). I do think your move has a higher likelihood of success, and with the mentoring network you have, you should do very well! It's a great and worthy cause.
I chose this name because it goes along with the dollar providing hope to families (key thing) plus the domain was available - easy to remember - working on a logo now. Found one that will cost me $10 of a house made out of dollar bills!!
Just bought the domain name/hosting and working on the site.
