"Thus, the aim of ‘.bid’ is to create a blank canvas for online auctioneering set within a secure environment. The Applicant will achieve this by creating a consolidated, versatile and dedicated space for auctioneering. As the new space is dedicated to those within this affinity group the Applicant will ensure that consumer trust is promoted. Consequently consumer choice will be augmented as there will be a ready marketplace specifically for auction enterprises to provide their goods and services. All stakeholders within the sector will be able to sample reactions to new ideas, or gather thoughts on the improvements of established ones. This will drive innovation and competition, as new channels will be available which are not yet fulfilled by current market offerings, compelling registrants to seek new and varied ways to separate themselves from the competition... Aside from certain start-up mechanisms, all domain names will generally be registered on a first-come, first-served basis. A Trademark Claims service will be offered for the first 90 days of general registration, with the intent of providing clear notice to potential Registrants of the existing rights of trademark owners with registered trademarks in the Trademark Clearinghouse."[http://gtldresult.icann.org/application-result/applicationstatus/applicationdetails/1200 ApplicationDetails, gTLDresult.ICANN.org]Retrieved 12 Dec 2012 ==Contract Signed== On 19 December 2013 [[Famous Four Media]] received a [[Registry Agreement]] signed by [[ICANN]] for .bid after passing all the required processes needed to become a [[Registry Operator]] for the string.[http://www.icann.org/en/about/agreements/registries-date Registry Agreements, ICANN.org] Retrieved 30 Dec 2013 ==Delegation and Availability== .bid was delegated to the [[Root Zone]] of the [[DNS]] on 2 March, 2014, completing the successful application for the string. ==References== {{reflist}} [[Category:TLD]] [[Category:Commerce New gTLDs|bid]] [[Category:TLDs with Registry Agreements|bid]]

Domain naming tips

3 basic tips when selecting the right domain name for your website.

Using a local top level domain

If it’s a local business and you want more customers, why not take a look at our domains which are given according to the location you require (.lt , .co.uk, .nyc, .berlin).

Avoid numbers

Avoid the usage of numbers because the people who hear about your website will be having a tough time figuring out if the website contains the number (2) or the number in words (two).

Avoid symbols

Hyphens and dashes will make things complicated and it doesn’t look professional.
