'BIZ' is a somewhat tacky abbreviation.

'.CO.AU' would be better, as is is a direct abbreviation of 'commercial'.
This presents a more professional full domain name.

After all, the reason most companies register domain names is to look more
professional on the Internet, otherwise their web sites would all be
http://www.isp.net.au/~someone.

'CO.AU' has the added benefit of being a standard abbreviation for
commercial domains (e.g. .co.uk).


I do not think it is a good idea to have two commercial 2LD's under the
same TLD. This is only going to confuse people, and there are still
plenty of free names in the '.COM.AU' namespace.

How about setting up as a second DNA for .com.au instead?

Yours sincerely,

Richard Archer.
