Why Premium .bible Domain Names Matter
The message of the Bible will remain forever unchanged.
However, in today’s digital world, the way these messages are delivered is changing rapidly, reinforcing the need for new platforms that make the Bible accessible to everyone.
American Bible Society is once again pioneering the way by through innovation with the new .bible top-level domain, which will broaden overall Bible engagement. The .bible top-level domain is part of American Bible Society’s digital strategy to see 100 million Americans engage with the Bible and 100 percent of the world’s languages translated for Bible engagement.
To reach this level of engagement, American Bible Society is encouraging organizations to seek out premium .bible domain names to help others engage with the Bible in new ways.
Here’s why premium .bible domains really matter, and why they require a more significant investment:
- Valuation: The pricing for premium .bible domain names was based on a comprehensive third-party valuation process that assessed the pricing based on current market value.
- The Registry Investment: Operating a new top-level domain is highly complex and requires a significant investment by a registry operator, the organization that provides all of the back-end support that allows .bible to come to life. The investment into a premium domain name helps offset some of these costs for American Bible Society.
- Keeping a Trusted Domain: American Bible Society is continually undergoing a comprehensive effort to ensure that this domain is a safe and trusted place, which requires additional resources to actively monitor the content on .bible websites for objectionable materials.
- Premium Pricing for First Year Only: You only need to pay premium pricing for the first year – making this a one-time investment. During the second year, the price of the domain name will revert back to normal pricing based on your domain registrar.
- The Bible is Priceless: As there is no greater wealth in the world than the Word of God, the Bible is priceless. In addition, premium .bible domain names are more valuable because they are short in length, containing common words or providing a more memorable web address.
- Your Love of the Bible: Finally, securing a premium .bible domain reinforces your deep love and admiration for the Bible and the Word of God.
