    I was recently in Bangalore, the Silicon Valley of India, and came across a media group on a person's T-shirt (I couldn't see the entire name) but the name ended in "[something]mediagroup.biz"

    And that reminded me of the extension which supposedly, I have never ever typed in my browser to open any website. Hardly ever do I remember, opening a website with .biz in its extension.
    And I realized that .BIZ is extension is dead. And so is .MOBI

    What other extensions do you think are dead, that you remember existed few years ago and haven't seen them around in a while?
    What do you think is the reason behind their demise?

    Dot BIZ is not dead. Why spread misinformation?

    And by the way, .biz is infinitely more valuable than many of the new gtld's floating around.

    It is memorable, short, catchy, and easily pronounceable. It passes the Radio Test with full muster and maximum Pelvic Thrust.

    I agree with what you have said! But it hasn't taken off. I mean based on my limited information, I don't see or use a lot of .biz websites and hence, my take on this!

    The numbers also seem to indicate similar things.

    Usage was what I was referring to. For that matter, I think investor's money is also not flowing in this extension. DO you have a different opinion on this?

    Is that a sarcasm?
    Very limited sales in .biz. 4-figure sale in this extension is almost rare!
