TLD type Generic top-level domain (gTLD)
Intended use Entities wishing to establish "a positive association with the Bible"
.bible is a delegated new top-level domain (TLD), approved by ICANN as a generic TLD (gTLD).
According to the ICANN application for this TLD, "The goal of the .BIBLE top-level domain is to establish itself as the recognized choice for registrants who want to market and promote themselves and their websites to, and reach, the Internet-using community, for ministry, business, personal or any other purpose, through a positive association with the Bible; and, as the recognized top level domain name for Internet consumers to know which people, businesses, information sources or other online resources associate themselves with the Bible."
The significance of this was described by Doug Birdsall, former president of American Bible Society: "This is the Bible's moment to move from Gutenberg to Google."
