FAQ - (Frequently Asked Questions) about the .BIZ domains.



1. What is the .Biz top level domain name? 
.BIZ is the world's first Internet-based environment dedicated exclusively to the business community. It promises to be much more than just another domain name. In addition to providing businesses with an enhanced presence on the Web, the .BIZ database platform will soon be able to provide services that more efficiently facilitate commerce across the Internet. Simply put, .BIZ means business.

2. Why do I want a domain name ending with .BIZ? 
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
in .COM
are already taken by someone else. The .BIZ top level domain will be introduced, November 7, 2001, so there is plenty of new, empty real estate, with excellent names
still available. In .BIZ 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 .BIZ domain TLD. 

3. How much does a .BIZ domain cost?

$70.00 US dollars for the first two years for the use of the domain, after that $70.00 every two years.

4. How do I change my DNS settings? 

The same way as with the .com,.net,.org domain names to to the domain modification form located at our site at DNS modification form . The first week DNS name servers will have to be resolved  in the .Info WHOIS, it will need time to apply all the DNS name servers globally on the Internet.

5. Who assigned the .BIZ TLD domain? 

The IANA (Internet Assigned Numbers Authority) who is solely responsible for all the TLD domain assignments. 

6. How do I upload my web page on to my domain? 

When registering a domain name, you do not receive any web space on our servers.We "park " the domain untill you are ready to host the domain. We can host your domain starting at $5.95 a month, 25mb space, 25 pop email addresses, your own control panel. Visit our Hosting Plans for more details.


  7. How long until my .BIZ domain works?

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 .biz 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 .Biz WHOIS database is finished with this process it will take up to 48 hrs with new .info registrations. NB: at launch date the .BIZ WHOIS will need to resolve the nameservers globally, this could give some delays in the beginning.


8. Dot-BIZ & Domainnames 

A domain name is simply an address on the World Wide Web. Or, put another way, it's a unique alpha-numeric designation that helps locate a particular computer on the global information network.

Dot-Biz works just like dot-com. Both are called top level domains, or TLDs in techspeak. Dot-com and dot-edu are examples of generic domains. Other examples are dot-net, and dot-org, and dot-cc. To allow room for growth, the designers of the Domain Name System also created now new top level domain names which will be available soon! .Info will launch "live" October 1, .biz is planned to go "live" November 7th, 2001.  [Question Not Answered?]    

9. Do .BIZ domain names have any restrictions?

Yes. The .BIZ domain can only be used for a "bona fide business or commercial use". A bona fide business use is one of the following:

to exchange goods, services, or property of any kind;

in the ordinary course of trade or business; or

to facilitate (i) the exchange of goods, services, information, or property of any kind; or, (ii) the ordinary course of trade or business

Registering a domain name solely for the purposes of (1) selling, trading or leasing the domain name for compensation, or (2) the unsolicited offering to sell, trade or lease the domain name for compensation does not constitute a "bona fide business or commercial use" of that domain name.

For illustration purposes, the following do not constitute a "bona fide business or commercial use" of a domain name:

using or intending to use the domain name exclusively for personal, noncommercial purposes; or

using or intending to use the domain name exclusively for the expression of noncommercial ideas (i.e., registering abcsucks.biz exclusively to criticize or otherwise express an opinion on the products or services of ABC company, with no other intended business or commercial purpose).


The maximum length of "domain names" is 63 characters preceding the .com (or .net, .org,.cc,.info)
