Anyone getting .bz domains?

Just seen the sudden surge in people buying them and decided to get monitor.bz (I believe computer.com sold for 2.2mill, I'm only asking 1mill for this :p).

Anyone else getting them/can you see them being useful in the future?

Re: Anyone getting .bz domains?

what sudden surge is this? .bz is one of the joke domains, avoid, invest elsewhere.

Re: Anyone getting .bz domains?

Dot BZ will never be worth more than 0.1% of a dot com, but I guess if it a million dollar term you might come out in the long run with a few bucks. Still a Pass in my opinion.

Yeah, funny that is about the only thing the Japanese have been quick off the mark with. Is there an auspicious term in Japanese that sounds like dot Biz? Are the Japanese big subscribers to ASCII.biz?

Your right of course. I think Drewbert's houseboy runs the Dot BZ registry from his computer when he is not looking.

Re: Anyone getting .bz domains?

I frequent one .bz site and in the beginning I'd always confuse the extension with .biz. that's another problem with .bz domains.

Re: Anyone getting .bz domains?

RD pretty much nailed it.

I would put .bz somewhere between "flakey" and "dodgy" on the scale.

Re: Anyone getting .bz domains?

Stick with dot com if you can help it. Resale value is always higher. A .bz won't get any real type-in traffic.

Re: Anyone getting .bz domains?

See if you can flip it on another forum for some profit.

Some ascii domains sell here, but they have to be pretty good and pretty cheap. Otherwise, these guys are more interested in good IDN domains in not-so-new extensions.

That it is still available should give you some kind of clue as to its potential value.
