Free domain names

As part of our commitment to the local community, we are pleased to offer free domain names (ending in .org.gg and .org.je) to charities, good causes and not-for-profit organisations based in the Channel Islands.

In order to qualify for this you must :-

(a) be serving the community in at least one of the Channel Islands (national organisations also qualify).
(b) be not-for-profit and either a charity, a 'good cause' or community or special interest group (such as a club or society).
(c) make active use of the domain
(d) choose a domain name that ends in .org.gg or .org.je

Free domain names may be registered

  1. through any local registrar
  2. through CloudfloorDNS
  3. directly with us

If you want to register directly with us please go to my.channelisles.net. When completing the form please ensure the name of the 'good cause' is entered in the 'Organisation' field for the Registrant.

You will be asked to authorise a charge for £10 to a credit or debit card as a security precaution -- this will be refunded to your card once your fee waiver application has been approved.

To apply for a fee waiver please write to us with some brief information about your good cause. You may do this by email or by using the contact form in your account.

Each application to us for a free domain name is vetted personally by one of our support team.

If you think it might not be clear from the name of the organisation that it qualifies as above, please feel free to contact us with additional information as to why you believe your 'good cause' qualifies'. Applicants for .ORG.GG/ORG.JE names who do not qualify for the 'good cause' fee waiver pay £10 per year..

NOTE: We only provide domain name registration. Other services, such as name servers, email or web hosting - are not included, and you will need to make your own arrangements for these. However if you need guidance, we can point you in the right direction.

Finally, please also note that domain names ending in anything other than .ORG.GG or .ORG.JE are always charged at our (or your registrar's) standard fees irrespective of whether the applicant is for-profit or not.
