About .coop

Since 2002, .coop has been the way to locate and identify cooperatives on the Internet. 

.Coop is the only domain that is reserved for cooperatives and cooperative organizations that are guided by cooperative values and principles as defined in the Cooperative Principles of the International Cooperative Alliance (ICA), such as member ownership and control.

DotCooperation LLC (dotCoop), the sponsor of the .coop domain, is a wholly owned subsidiary of the National Cooperative Business Association (NCBA) and defines and implements eligibility and verification policies for use of the exclusive cooperative domain.  Midcounties Cooperative Domains Ltd (MCD), is a wholly owned subsidiary of Midcounties Cooperative, Ltd and is responsible for the operation and maintenance of .coop's technical environment.

Our founders
