What are the rules for registration of .biz, .com, .info, .net, .org, and .ws names?

The .com, .info, .net, .org, and .ws TLDs are globally available and unrestricted.

Traditionally, however, names in .net have been used by organizations involved in Internet infrastructure activities - typically ISPs (Internet Service Providers) - while .org is frequently used by noncommercial organizations. .biz is available to businesses only. Albeit unrestricted, usage of the .info TLD implies that the site content is of a primarily informative nature.
