The benefits of a .bz domain name
Originally, .bz was the geographic domain ending for Belize, a tiny Central American country bordering Guatemala and Mexico with a population of less than 400,000. Granted to this nation in 1991, little by little, .bz has developed a market outside of the country among small businesses looking for a creative space that's well adapted to their business needs and who want to be able to choose the right domain name.
A .bz domain name is particularly suited for small businesses
A .bz domain name is especially popular with small businesses looking to thrive online. It's also particularly well known among internet users who have kept up with the latest trends online: ".bz" has been adopted as a shorthand for "buzz," evoking a sense of anticipation and viral success. By getting a .bz domain name, you gain access to this audience and cultivate your business's image.
Promote your business with .bz
Besides its use to signify "buzz," .bz is also often taken to mean "business". Despite the appearance of .biz in 2002, which may have caused it to lose some prominence in this area, .bz has managed to keep up and today is still used by a wide range of businesses.
