Free domain names
As part of our commitment to the local community, we are pleased to offer free domain names to charities, good causes and not-for-profit organisations based in the Channel Islands. Free domain names end in .org.gg or .org.je
In order to qualify for this you must :-
(a) be not-for-profit and/or a 'good cause', such as a charity, or community/special interest group (such as a club or society);
(b) be serving the community in at least one of the Channel Islands (this includes local branches of national and international organisations);
(c) make active use of the domain name.
Free domain names may be registered through any local registrar.
They can also be registered directly with us. If you want to register direct please go to my.channelisles.net. When completing the form please ensure the name of your organisation is entered in the 'Organisation' field in order to qualify for the free registration.
When registering, you will be asked to authorise a charge for £10 to your card, This is done as part of our security precautions and will be refunded when your application for a free registration has been approved.
To confirm your entitlement to free registration, all you need to do is write us a short email with brief information about your organisation. This does not have to be very detailed --- we will contact you if anything is unclear. You should do this by sending us an email or using the contact form in your account.
NOTE: We provide registration-only service to direct customers. Other commonly used services (name servers, email or web hosting &c) are not included, and you will need to make your own arrangements for these. However if you need guidance, we are happy to point you in the right direction.
Finally, please note that domain names ending in anything other than .ORG.GG or .ORG.JE are always charged for, at our (or your registrar's) standard rate irrespective of whether the Registrant is for-profit or not.
