NEW TOP LEVEL DOMAINS BEGIN WORKING
Posted 28 Jun 2001 01:59:16 UTC

Two of the brand new top level domains are slowly starting to work. This week the .biz and .info TLDs were added to the root zones and a very limited number of addresses began to work.

There is still no surefire way to register domains under either of these TLDs but there are plenty of opportunistic "pre-registration" schemes floating around which encourage people to enter a lottery multiple times to increase the odds of getting the site they want - all for a fee, of course.

It is expected that true registration for both .biz and .info will begin sometime this summer.

New sites under .biz:
http://www.nic.biz
http://www.neulevel.biz
http://ipclaims.neulevel.biz
http://whois.nic.biz

New sites under .info:
http://www.nic.info
http://www.afilias.info
http://whois.nic.info
