The new .BID Top Level Domain (TLD) is a short, easy, and instructive domain name suffix that is intended for use specifically by online auctioneers. It provides auction companies with a relevant virtual space that buyers and sellers will find easy to remember.

Key benefits of a .BID TLD domain:

  • dedicated namespace
  • clear message
  • search engine optimization
  • drives the right kind of traffic


Why .BID?

The use of a .BID domain improves online searches as buyers and sellers are more easily able to identify the content of relevance to them, which in turn drives website traffic and increasing participation in the auction process. A .BID domain name for your website distinguishes it from other generic ecommerce-related content found across the Internet, making it easier for people to understand that the website is all about auctions.
