Search engines will not care at all as far as I know, but your visitors may. It's a lot harder for people to remember domains with weird extensions, though, so I would always look for a COM if at all possible. BlueSky msg:388632 5:31 am on Oct 26, 2003 (gmt 0)
Yeah, Belize (.bz) is a pretty uncommon one. Robert Charlton msg:388633 6:00 am on Oct 26, 2003 (gmt 0)

Some vendors are hyping it as a substitute for .biz, but I don't feel it is. I doubt that the engines care, but the users might. Would you buy a used car from someone in Belize?

I am really sorry I had a typo indeed I did mean " .biz "
