Tell the world that you are a Cooperative. That you put people first. That you are ethical and fair. That you’re great to do business with. That you’re part of a global movement of more than 1 billion members, 1 of every 6 citizens globally, representing 12% of the world’s employed population.
Your unique business identity starts with a .coop domain – your digital brand – a brand known for its economic advantages to its community, consumers, and members. When somebody sees a .coop email or a .coop website they know they’re talking to a cooperative.
DotCooperation empowers cooperatives to participate and thrive in the digital economy with identity tools and resources. Identity tools include .coop domain names and the Cooperative Marque, and .creditunion sector domain names. Resources include the .COOP Global Directory and the Digital Empowerment Learning Hub.
Every cooperative that uses a .coop domain name as the primary address for their website elevates their cooperative identity, principles, and purpose. It unites the cooperative movement online with a shared identity. It transforms an organization’s value from a lone contributor to an active participant of a global online network of cooperatives. All cooperatives verify their identity when selecting a .coop domain name.
Since 2001, DotCooperation has united the cooperative community through a shared online identity and platform where cooperative organizations can participate, inform, educate, and pioneer a path for others to join and support the cooperative movement. DotCooperation is jointly owned by the International Cooperative Alliance (ICA) and NCBA-CLUSA (National Cooperative Business Association-CLUSA International), two non-profit organizations with a mission to develop the global cooperative movement.
