.biz Registry Agreement
On 30 June 2019, ICANN (Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers) and Registry Services, LLC, entered into a renewal Registry Agreement under which Registry Services, LLC operates the .biz top-level domain. The renewal agreement may be viewed by following the links below.
In connection with the renewal of the .biz Registry Agreement, ICANN and Registry Services, LLC have agreed to implement the incorporation of unique legacy-related terms of .biz through an "Addendum" to the Registry Agreement. The Addendum will amend the terms of the .biz Registry Agreement. Where the Addendum provides for a different formulation of a provision, the provision in the Addendum will control. Similarly, where the Addendum states that a provision will have "no force or effect", the referenced provision in the Registry Agreement will be considered not applicable. The terms of the Addendum will not be affected by future global amendments under Sections 7.6 or 7.7 of the existing Base gTLD Registry Agreement, which will enable future global amendments to proceed while preserving the unique terms applicable to the .biz TLD. If an amendment is approved under Sections 7.6 or 7.7 that would amend or modify any terms of the .biz Registry Agreement that are modified by the Addendum, ICANN and Registry Services, LLC have agreed in the Addendum to (i) enter into good faith discussions regarding whether an amendment to the Addendum is appropriate in light of the global amendment and (ii) mutually agree on an appropriate amendment to the Addendum of the .biz Registry Agreement.
