Edit: The owner of the
.org site writes below that it was a demo project and he’s taking it offline. See https://meta.discourse.org/t/what-is-Communiteq (formerly DiscourseHosting)-org-org-not-com/30554/3 — so it was a well intended site then, and my thoughts below were wrong /Edit
There is https://www.communiteq.com which I think people know about already, but there is also http://www.discoursehosting.org. I’m thinking that the latter site, which ends with
.com, is not a serious hosting provider and perhaps they would steal people’s money? They bought their domain in 2014, more than one year later than
.com, but still opted for the almost same domain name.
No one uses
www.discoursehosting.org right, and you too think it’s a scam? (But many people like
www.[Communiteq](https://www.communiteq.com) (formerly DiscourseHosting) (with
com) I suppose.)
So this is what happens if one doesn’t buy the
com domain name, only buys
.org? I actually once went to
.org and thought “oh they’ve remade their website and now they require people to pay up front, they’ve removed the trial period”. This was before I had become aware about both the
com versions, and I had typed
...org in the address bar.
Edit: Now I googled for the person who has registered the
.org and seems he’s a real person. I am confused.
