a different ending. It is treated in precisely the same way as .COM by all the DNS
nameservers in the world.
2. Why do I want a domain name ending with .INFO?
There are already more than six and a
half million domains registered in the
.COM top level domain. Most of the good, short, easy to remember names
are already taken by someone else. The .INFO top level domain
introduced, October 1, so there is plenty of new, empty real estate, with excellent names
still available. In .INFO you can have a domain name that fits your business,
idea, information about your main domain, family or other name more closely. Protect
your bussiness name, and register the .INFO domain TLD. The .BIZ will be

It takes up to 24 hours to have your domain working worldwide if your nameservers
have been setup properly. At the launch of the new .info domain
names name servers will have to be put in place worldwide (dns global
updates) this process could take 2 or 3 days, once the .info WHOIS
database is finished with this process it will take up to 48 hrs with
new .info registrations. NB: at launch date the .INFO WHOIS will need to
resolve the nameservers globally, this could give some delays in the
