.bible is a delegated new top-level domain (TLD), approved by ICANN as a generic TLD (gTLD).

Usage[edit]

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."[1]

Significance[edit]

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."[2]
