New gTLD Sunrise Availability March / April 2015

New gTLD Sunrise Availability March / April 2015

Generic top-level domains (gTLD) such as .com, .net and .org typically cycle through a “Sunrise Period” prior to becoming available to the general public.

The Sunrise Period allows trade mark owners an advanced opportunity to register domain names that correspond with their trade mark registrations prior to the public launch of the gTLD.

Some of the new gTLDs currently in a Sunrise Period or entering into a Sunrise Period in March and April 2015 include:

Extension Order Entry Deadline
.tires 19 March 2015
.flowers 25 March 2015
.wedding 26 March 2015
.adult 30 March 2015
.garden 2 April 2015
.fashion 2 April 2015
.ngo 14 April 2015
.college 15 April 2015
.fit 16 April 2015
.sale 23 April 2015
.video 23 April 2015
.design 24 April 2015

While the gTLDs listed above may not appear to be of direct interest, trade mark owners may wish to consider applying to register “defensive” domain name registrations in an effort to protect their trade marks from misuse in these domain name spaces.

For more information on pre-ordering gTLDs in a Sunrise Period or general information on registering domain names, please contact Khajaque Kortian.
