    .biz

    Are there many converters already to this new top level domain name? If so how is it working out for you?

    I suspect that any new top level domains aren't going to do anyone any good. Everyone knows ".com" Anything else just sounds like a cheap name. .biz or .cc just don't have the same punch that .com does. They somehow sound less professional..

    Just my $0.02

    I agree, just look at this forum, it's called "Dot Com Survival Kit"

    .com is the first thing everyone thinks of so if you want a catchy or useful domain, it has to be a .com
    The only plus is that more names are available.

    I kinda liek the .biz domains I only got one so far but I think its very catchy.

    I still agree .com is generally best.

    But I think some domaisn can be more catchy as a .biz, I think I liek the sound of my eek.biz better than eek.com and I think my name is good enough to remember very well, of couse eek.com would be good to have but I think eek.biz sounds beter.

    The .biz domain name is defiantely the best of the new tld's launched in my opion and is better than .net and .org domains, But it will take a while till users are used to this domain, But i think it will become popular.
