There is no better way to share your story online than with .BIO, the newest TLD available for registration as of today. There are thousands of biographies online and now there is a domain extension specifically for them. Make your bio stand out from the crowd with your own .BIO domain. Use it to highlight your own biography or the biography of friends, family, heroes, and more.

But biographies aren't the only focus for the .BIO domain because there are many words that start with "bio"! Love biology? What about biodiversity or biotechnology? .BIO is especially focused on the agricultural industry and organic produce, food, and farming because "bio" is used as a single term in many languages to designate products and practices related to organic agriculture and food.

"Bio" is a combining form meaning "life" occurring in loanwords from Greek, which is why it's used to form words such as biography, biology, and more. Give your website life with .BIO!
