Domains ending in .HIV:
The registered .HIV domain names will contribute to this goal in being the backbone of a charity. Funds from domain name registrations will be collected and used for charitable causes aiming to raise awareness and reduce the stigmatisation of people affected by HIV and AIDS.

"By assuming the registry operations of .hiv, we are taking our core skills and putting them at the service of one of the most urgent challenges of humankind," says Uniregistry's Managing Director Frank Schilling. "The United Nations has reconfirmed the opportunities to end the global AIDS epidemic within our lifetime. At Uniregistry, we want to be a part of this ambitious endeavor."
