New TLDs

  • What is Sunrise period?

    A Sunrise period takes place before a new top-level domain (nTLD) officially launches. It allows trademark holders an opportunity to apply for registration of their trademarked domain names before general registration of the new TLD is available to everyone. For example, a brand such as Google is able to secure "google", which is their trademark. Following a Sunrise period is usually a Landrush period. Then, some new TLDs have an Early Access Period before General Availability. Can I register domains through Dynadot during a new TLD's Sunrise period? What are the launch phases of a new TLD?

  • 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 are premium Donuts domains?

    Premium Donuts domains are considered registry premium domains. This means they are a select list of domain names that are sold at a premium price by the registry. Donuts, the central registry for these domains, charges a premium registration price due to the estimated higher value of the domain name. The premium price will be applied to the registration, renewal, and transfer price of the domain name. Premium domains are often memorable and can be a great investment. Some examples of premium domains are 1, 2, and 3 character domains as well as one word domains. You can see if a domain is a Donuts domain by going to that domain's page and checking the "Registry" section of the "Domain Information" table (click on the domain from our TLD list). You can also see a list of our Donuts domains on our blog post about their Early Access General Availability period (you will need to scroll down). Please note that domains purchased during Donuts' Early Access General Availability period have regular renewal and transfer pricing despite having higher registration pricing during that period unless the domain you purchase during the Early Access period is a premium domain. Please note that premium prices are subject to change per the registry. This applies to registration, renewal, and transfer pricing.

  • 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 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!

  • 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

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

    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. In most cases no, we do not support registrations during a new TLD's Landrush period. The exception to this is Verisign's new IDN versions of .COM and .NET, which so far includes .コム, .닷컴, .닷넷, and will have more to come. We will be participating in both the Priority Access Period and the Landrush Period that follows the TLD's Priority Access Period. For those new TLDs that we don't support Landrush for, you can instead place a preorder with us before the TLD has launched. Then, our system will attempt to register that domain name for you right when the new TLD launches.

  • What is the renewal fee for a premium domain from Minds + Machines?

    If you are purchasing a registry premium domain that is associated with the Minds + Machines central registry, the renewal price will be the same as the registration price. Minds + Machines domains include*: .BEER .CASA .COOKING .COUNTRY .FASHION .FISHING .FIT .GARDEN .HORSE .RODEO .SURF .VODKA .WEDDING .WORK .YOGA *NOTE: This list may not be complete as we are often launching new TLDs. To check if a certain domain is a Minds + Machines domain, you can visit that domain's page (click on the domain from our TLD list) and check the "Domain Information" table under "Registry". Also, premium prices are subject to change per the registry. This applies to registration, renewal, and transfer pricing.

  • What is a name collision?

    According to ICANN, "a name collision occurs when an attempt to resolve a name used in a private name space (e.g. under a non-delegated Top-Level Domain, or a short, unqualified name) results in a query to the public Domain Name System (DNS). When the administrative boundaries of private and public namespaces overlap, name resolution may yield unintended or harmful results. Name collisions are not new. The introduction of any new domain name into the DNS, whether a generic TLD, country code TLD or second-level domain name, creates the potential for name collision. However, queries for un-delegated TLDs at the root level of the DNS have received renewed attention because certain applied-for new TLD strings could be identical to name labels used in private networks. A secure, stable and resilient Internet is ICANN's number one priority. Therefore, we've made a commitment to the Internet community to launch a substantial effort to mitigate and manage name collision occurrence." You may have noticed that many of the new TLD Registries have recently been releasing their domain name collisions. This is being done after working with ICANN to deal with any potential issues that could arise from these domain names. Keep an eye on our blog for any upcoming announcements on name collision releases.

  • 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.
