The new “.bio” internet extension is almost here

From the 24th of April 2014 the organic world will have its own space on the internet. Organic organizations will be able to make themselves visible online by using “.bio” as their domain name extension, for example mycompany.bio or myproduce.bio.

Here are the key dates:

24th April: priority to trademark owners

The launch begins with a period exclusively reserved for trademark owners registered in the TMCH, during which they can protect their brands and register their .bio domain names before they are available to the general public.

22nd May: be the first to register a .bio name

Everybody can register a .bio web address starting May 22nd. You can find more information about how to register a .bio web address at www.dot-bio.net.
