What is .BIBLE?
On June 20, 2011 the Board of Directors of the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) voted to expand generic Top-Level Domains (gTLDs) to include .anything. Prior to this, the online world was defined by 22 different Top-Level Domains (TLDs), including .com and .net, and approximately 250 country code TLDs (ccTLDs), such as .jp for Japan.
American Bible Society’s application for the .BIBLE top-level domain has successfully passed initial evaluation. It is a significant milestone in our continuing mission of bringing the life-changing message of the Bible to where it is needed most.
By working closely with our global ministry partners and Bible societies in more than 200 countries and territories around the world, we are ready to share this new digital space so that people everywhere will know where to go for all things Bible.
