.BZ domain policies

.BZ is the TLD for Belize, and is regulated by the Afilias registry.

.BZ is an open registry; you do not have to be a resident or business operator in Belize to register a .BZ domain.

Registration details

Registration details can be found in the TLD reference chart.

Leap year considerations

If you register a .BZ domain on February 29 for 1 to 3 or 5 years, the expiry date is set to February 28; if you register the domain for 4 years, it expires on February 29.


A .BZ domain name can be renewed for a period of 1-9 years (cannot be registered for more than 10 years at a time).

We hold a .BZ domain for 40 days after the expiry date. On the 40th day it is deleted from our system and enters into the Redemption Grace Period with the registry.

The Redemption Grace Period lasts for 30 days after which the registry deletes the domain and makes it available to the general public.
