What is a .biz “premium” domain name?
A .biz premium domain name is a domain name that has a higher than standard price to reflect its relative value in the marketplace. Premium domain names may include, among other things, names such as one, two and three-character domain names, popular keyword domains, brandable domains, and generic term domains that are in high demand. Premium domain names are generally those that can be used by many different people for many different reasons.
Why does the .biz Registry offer premium domain names?
The domain name market has evolved substantially since the early days of the Internet and the .biz Registry has evolved its namespace accordingly. As the market for domain names has grown, it has become increasingly clear that not all domain names are of equal value. Just as with stocks, real estate or any other asset class — domain names can and do have different levels of value.
How long has the .biz Registry offered premium domain name options?
Historically, .biz premium domains were available only by personally contacting the .biz Registry or through one of a select number of reputable aftermarket providers. As online sales technologies and domain sales strategies have advanced, the .biz Registry began to expand the manner in which premium domains could be distributed.
As of March 2020, the .biz Registry implemented a new pricing strategy to allow premium priced domain names to be marketed and sold directly through the retail distribution network — exactly the same way as standard priced domain names have always been made available. Unlike the past where most premium priced domains had no common, structured approach to sales platforms or pricing, today consumers can quickly and easily purchase premium .biz domain names directly from their preferred providers on the domain registration platforms they are most comfortable using.
How and where can I register a .biz premium domain name?
Registering a .biz premium domain name is exactly like registering any standard domain name from your preferred .biz domain retailer. To find your ideal .biz domain name, you can search out site, go to your preferred domain retailer (for example, GoDaddy, Name.com, Domain.com, etc.), put the available premium domain name in your shopping cart and pay for it.
How much do .biz premium domain names cost?
All .biz premium domain names are valued based on a variety of attributes including thousands of historic and comparable sales, current market trends, keyword and keyword phrase popularity among other things. From time to time, the .biz Registry will evaluate its premium domain name price structure and options which may result in necessary adjustments to continue to meet market value and demand. For specific premium domain name prices, please check with your preferred .biz domain retailer. It is important to note that prices will vary according to each retailer’s individual pricing policies and practices.
How much does it cost to renew my .biz premium domain name?
Whatever premium price you may have initially paid to register your .biz premium domain name, your annual renewal fee will be the “standard” renewal fee charged for all .biz domain names. Please check with your preferred domain retailer for details, as fees may differ according to each retailer’s individual pricing policies and practices.
