    New TLDs

    • What is Landrush period?

      A Landrush period is a special period during which registration for a new TLD that has not yet launched is available either to a special group or at a special (usually premium) price. The Landrush period typically takes place after the Sunrise period. Following Landrush period is typically either a Early Access Period or General Availability for the new TLD. Can I register domains through Dynadot during a new TLD's Landrush period? What are the launch phases of a new TLD?

    • What is the renewal and transfer price for a premium Rightside domain?

      The renewal and transfer price of a registry premium domain from Rightside depends on the registration price. In many cases, the renewal and transfer price is the same as the domain's registration price. If you want to know what the renwal and transfer price is for a premium domain, you can email us at info@dynadot.com. Rightside domains include the following extensions*: .ACTOR .AIRFORCE .ARMY .ATTORNEY .AUCTION .BAND .CONSULTING .DANCE .DEGREE .DEMOCRAT .DENTIST .ENGINEER .FORSALE .FUTBOL .GIVES .HAUS .IMMOBILIEN .KAUFEN .LAWYER .MARKET .MODA .MORTGAGE .NAVY .NINJA .PUB .REHAB .REPUBLICAN .REVIEWS .RIP .ROCKS .SOCIAL .SOFTWARE .VET .VIDEO *There may be additional domains whose central registry is Rightside as we are often launching new TLDs from Rightside as well as other registries. To see if a certain domain is a Rightside domain, you can check the "Domain Information" table under "Registry" on any individual domain's page (click on the domain you want from our TLD list). Please note that premium prices are subject to change per the registry. This applies to registration, renewal, and transfer pricing.

    • Do you have an alphabetical list of the new TLDs that have launched and are now available for general registration?

      Yes! We created an alphabetical list of the new TLDs that have launched on our blog. We often update the list and you will see the date of the last update at the bottom. See a full list of all the TLDs we support

    • What is a brand TLD?

      A brand TLD is a top-level domain that is a brand or corporation name. With the launch of ICANN's new gTLD program, they allowed brands to apply for their own TLD. For example, Visa has .VISA, Ferrari has .FERRARI, McDonalds has .MCDONALDS, and many, many more. In most cases, brand TLDs will be restricted to brand usage only (though this is up to the individual brand). As a result, Dynadot does not support any brand TLDs. We do, however, support over 500 TLDs (including many new TLDs). See our full list and find your dream domain today!

    • Why was my domain preorder cancelled?

      There are a few reasons why your preorder may have been cancelled: Preorders may be cancelled by our system if there is a trademark claim in the Trademark Clearinghouse (TMCH). Preorders may be cancelled if the preordered domain, initially quoted at normal pricing, is later determined to be a registry premium domain. (This is set by the central registry.) Registry premium domains are sold at a higher cost than normal domains. Preorders for domains that are marked as restricted or reserved cannot be registered. We will make every effort to keep our preorder search accurate, but due to the sheer volume of new TLDs being released, our preorder search may not have the most current reserved list. If your preorder is cancelled, you will be given a refund in account credit.

    • What are the launch phases of a new TLD?

      There are several launch phases that occur before a new top-level domain (nTLD) officially launches and is available to the public for registration. The phases depend on the central registry that is launching the TLD, but typically they include: Sunrise period: This period allows trademark holders the opportunity to secure their trademark on the new TLD. Landrush period: This period typically offers registrations at a premium price or to a special group (also usually at a premium price). Early Access period: This is a special period usually available right before a new TLD officially launches. Typically, prices are premium, but they get lower each day of the period. General Availability (GA): Once a new TLD is GA, it has officially launches and is available to the public for registration. Please note that some new TLD offer pre-orders before their GA launch. Pre-orders simply allow the registrant to try and register the domain they want right when GA starts.

    • Can I register domains through Dynadot during a new TLD's Sunrise period?

      No, we do not support registrations during any new TLD's Sunrise period. The Sunrise period allows trademark holders an opportunity to register their trademarked domain names on the new TLD before it officially launches into general availability. Instead, you can place a preorder with us for new TLDs that have not yet launched. Placing a preorder allows you the opportunity to try and register the domain name you want right when the new TLD launches.

    • What is a domain preorder?

      We offer preorders for new TLDs that have not yet launched. Placing a preorder allows you the opportunity to try and register the domain name you want right when the new TLD launches. When you place a preorder with us, your order will remain open until the new TLD you ordered launches. On the launch date, we will attempt to register the domain name you ordered. If we are unable to register the domain you ordered, you receive an account credit. NOTE: A preorder is not the same as an order made during the New TLD's Sunrise or Landrush periods. We do not support the new TLD Sunrise or Landrush periods (in most cases). We only accept 1 preorder (must be paid) for each domain. First come, first serve. Preordered domains cannot be grace deleted. Preorders may be cancelled by our system if there is a trademark claim in the Trademark Clearinghouse (TMCH). Preorders may be cancelled if the preordered domain, initially quoted at normal pricing, is later determined to be a registry premium domain. (This is set by the central registry.) Registry premium domains are sold at a higher cost than normal domains. Preorders for domains that are marked as restricted or reserved cannot be registered. We will make every effort to keep our preorder search accurate, but due to the sheer volume of new TLDs being released, our preorder search may not have the most current reserved list.

    • What is General Availability?

      General Availability (GA) period is the period after a new top-level domain (nTLD) is officially launched to the public. During this time, domain registrations are simply done on a first come, first serve basis. Any TLD listed on our TLD prices page is in GA. What are the launch phases of a new TLD? What is Sunrise period? What is Landrush period? What is Early Access period?

    • What is a community TLD?

      A community TLD is a top level domain that is operated for the benefit of a clearly delineated community. Community TLDs were first introduced as an application type during ICANN's New gTLD Program. According to the program, applicants could apply as a "Community-Based Delegation" and they would be given priority for their TLD if there were to be an auction due to multiple applicants. An example of a new TLD that was applied for as a community TLD is .SCOT, which represents Scottish people, businesses, and culture online (Scotland is considered part of the United Kingdom and does not have its own ccTLD and is under .UK). Please note that although there were many community TLD applicants, not all were successful as "Community-Based Delegations" due to ICANN's strict requirements for what that meant. All TLDs that might be considered community TLDs are also considered gTLDs.
