Hello
I have a need to register a new DN
although most of the name flavors are registered
the same name with an extension of .BZ
is available

what do you think about it?
do SE's have a problem with it?

thanks

regards

Henry

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.

Yeah, Belize (.bz) is a pretty uncommon one.

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?
