There’s never been a better time to do business online. Millions of business owners are coming to this realization every day. As they prepare to take that leap, .BIZ is their domain of choice. The barriers to creating a digital presence are lower than ever before. In this wide-open digital world, .BIZ stands out as the sensible and accessible choice for any business looking to establish themselves online and start growing. The future of business is here and .BIZ is trending up.
Introduced in 2001, .BIZ is one of today’s most trusted top-level domains. There’s a wide selection of .BIZ domains available, offering you the opportunity to snag that name you really want. The .BIZ domain is highly memorable and stands out in a digital landscape filled with more common domains. With a .BIZ, you can rest easy knowing your new domain meets the highest security standards.
The .BIZ domain extension was created for business users. In many countries “biz” is shorthand for “business”, so when you see a website address ending in .BIZ you naturally think about “business”.
Apart from the obvious business concept, you’ll also find that there are more domain names available to register in .BIZ.
With over 2 million names registered, the .BIZ domain is quite big, but it’s still a lot smaller than .COM, so there are still plenty of good domain names available.
As well as being suggestive of ‘business’, .BIZ domain names offer more availability than other registries. There are over 2 million names registered in the .BIZ TLD (Top Level Domain), however that is still a lot less than .COM, so there are still plenty of good domain names available in .BIZ.

The term ‘generic Top-Level Domains’ (gTLDs) describes long-established domains such as .COM, .NET, .ORG, and .BIZ, as well as hundreds of ‘new gTLDs’ which have appeared in recent years, such as .BLOG, .IRISH, .DESIGN or .ROCKS.
These types of domains are called ‘generic’ to distinguish them from ‘country-code TLDs’ (ccTLDs) such as .IE or .FR.
The main benefit to choosing a new gTLD (generic Top-Level Domain) such as .BLOG, is availability. The older long-established domains like .COM have millions of registered domain names, and it can be difficult to find a memorable, meaningful name which has not already been registered by someone else. The new gTLDs have opened up hundreds of new namespaces, with new opportunities for great domain names.
The second benefit of new gTLDs is that many of the new domain extensions are valuable keywords in their own right, and not merely a redundant suffix. A new gTLD is a more efficient. Compare BlueSuedeShoes.com with BlueSuede.shoes.
Yes, Google and other search engines rank new gTLDs the same way as the ‘old’ gTLDs.
The general rule is to make sure it’s relevant to the business, service or information you’re providing. So if you’re selling shoes, something like yourcompany.shoes would be a good start.
The question of whether to migrate an established website to a new domain is one that requires careful consideration and planning. If your website is established and you’ve put a lot of effort in promoting your current domain name then we would not advise you to suddenly switch your website to a new domain, irrespective of the TLD. You could start by simply redirecting the new TLD to your current domain name and move to the new TLD once a proper migration plan is in place.
Alternatively, you might choose to use a new gTLD to highlight a different aspect of your business, for example: Blacknight.blog; Blacknight.careers.
