New Directory.Coop Site Live

dotCoop is pleased to announce that the new www.directory.coop site is now available

 

Based on feedback from .coop domain name holders as well as other users of the previous map-based directory.coop site, which was first launched in 2009, dotCoop has worked to make the directory more accessible and easier to use. The website also uses Google Translator to provide the site information in a variety of languages.

 

The map-based directory uses a geo-locator that is part of most web browsers to orient your location; respond to the query from your browser when you first go to the site to make it easier to perform your searches.

 

The Search checks domain names, locations and co-op names for your inquiry and responds with all results so you can refine your results quickly. 

 

The information displayed is from the Registrant Contact information.  If your information is incorrect, you will need to update the information on your registrar's site.  It should appear almost immediately on the directory site.  If you aren't sure who your registrar is or how to contact them, let dotCoop know and we'll help you get the information updated.

 

The display does not provide the contact individual's name, email address or telephone number for security reasons.  Visitors can simply link through to the displayed website to use the current information on your site.  This also increase visits to your site!  And of course, please alert us to any websites that you want to "opt-out" so they do not appear on the directory.

 

In addition, the results display any other .coop domains that you have registered and active so that visitors can see the other programs your co-op is promoting or supporting.

 

Find your website on directory.coop and make sure your information is correct and your website homepage is displayed.  If anything is not correct, please check with your registrar or contact dotCoop as explained in the FAQs. We'll be happy to help you get that information updated to make sure that people using the directory can find you!

 

Don't have an active .coop domain and don't know why?  Contact us and we'll help you find out why and help you get your .coop domain or get the one you have activated.  Give us a call or email us.

 

dotCoop has worked to respond to your concerns about directory.coop and we would like to hear your feedback on the new directory. If there are things that you would like to see on the directory, please let us know.  We have updates planned later in 2012 but would love to hear your ideas as well.
