The .biz top-level generic domain has been around since 2001; Registered domains are managed by "New level", a company belonging to "NeuStar" which is responsible for .us domains.
Meanwhile, websites with different orientations use the .biz domain - whether it's a professional business presence, a private web project or an online portal.
