gTLD News: Seven new domain extensions launch November 26, 2013


The "Domain Explosion" has begun! On November 26th, 2013, the first seven (7) new generic Top Level Domain (gTLD) extensions will open:

  • .BIKE
  • .GURU

The first 60 days is a "Sunrise Period" exclusive to Trademark Holders.

Non-trademark holders will be able to pre-book for the General Availability phase which begins on January 29, 2014.

Sunrise Period - November 26, 2013 to January 24, 2014

Trademark holders that want to protect their names in any of the seven extensions during the Sunrise Period need to validate their trademark through the Trademark Clearinghouse (TMCH).

Trademark validation may take up to 34 days so ACT NOW before the Sunrise Period ends!
