The Domains and URLs Web page on EERE's Communication Standards site has been updated to address one of the common questions that EERE program and partnership Web sites have: What does a site have to do to acquire an Energy.gov, .ORG, or top level .GOV URL?

The new page now summarizes which pages are eligible for Energy.gov, top level .GOV, and non-governmental URLs such as .ORG. It also includes links to the OMB and DOE Web pages that explain the formal rules processes behind acquiring these domains.

There is also a complete list of all of EERE's unique URLs for those of you curious about what has already been approved. (MS Word 42 KB)

If you have any comments about this page, or any suggestions about how to make these rules easier to understand, please share your thoughts in the comments.
