put up advertisements on their website!


Hey, Aaron. The two organizations may co-sponsor the site, but the "dot-org" top-level domain is not a guarantee that the sponsor is a non-profit. While many non-commercial entities' sites are dot-orgs, the domain isn't restricted to non-profits. It only denotes an organization whose purpose didn't fit the other original top-level domains -- dot-mil, dot-gov, dot-com, dot-net and the like. So, nothing prevents CEA and NAB from paying the site's bills with a few ads.

An example of an entity whose site's top-level domain doesn't square with its nature is AntennaCraft: It's a dot-net even though that domain is most often associated with ISPs.
