.xxx Sunrise applications now being taken

The new .xxx registry is intended for adult entertainment providers. Registered trademark owners not in the adult entertainment industry wishing to protect their brands need to take advantage of the limited opportunity to “opt-out”. If you do not want your brand associated with an .xxx domain, we can help you submit your application to reserve and block your trademarks from release.

The .xxx TLD will be launched in 3 stages: a sunrise period of up to 30 days commencing September 2011 with an A and B stream, followed by ‘land rush’ and ‘general availability’ stages.

Applications will be submitted via our Domain Name Management team.

Sunrise A: for members of the sponsored community (adult entertainment) who own a trademark or an exact corresponding domain name in other IANA TLDs registered prior to February 2010. Multiple applications will be resolved in an auction.

PRICE: €199.00 plus VAT non-refundable validation fee &  €99.00 plus VAT registration fee on completion of registration ( 1 year)

Sunrise B: for non-members of the sponsored community who own a trademark. Only protective/blocking registrations will be allowed for non-members; these domains WILL resolve to a plain page / template that will be the same for all, stating that this domain has been blocked as of Sunrise B. The WHOIS will only show the data of the Registry and not that of the applicant.

PRICE: €99.00 plus VAT non-refundable application fee &  €200.00 plus VAT submission fee on submission to registry (10 year)

Landrush (October) : for members of the sponsored community. Any available name can be requested at a premium price. Multiple applications will be resolved in an auction.

PRICE: €149.00 plus VAT non-refundable validation fee &  €99.00 plus VAT registration fee on completion of registration ( 1 year)

General Availability (December): for members of the sponsored community, registrations will be accepted on a first come first served basis.

PRICE: €141.00 plus VAT  (1 year)

Non-sponsored community members will be given the opportunity to get ‘Non-Resolving’ names

Names secured through Sunrise B will not result in the registration of a conventional, resolving domain name. Instead the names will be reserved and blocked from live use. Companies are using the Sunrise B phase to keep the domain names out of the hands of cybersquatters and competitors. Sunrise B applications will be subject to a one-off fee and will not incur annual renewal fees, blocked domains under Sunrise B may however be subject to review by the Registry after a 10 year period.
