First wave of TLDs available now

The internet's latest transformation is here. Set yourself apart from competitors by registering one of ICANN's new top-level domains. Choose from the first available these domains could be the perfect fit for your business. 

Back in October, we published an article about ICANN’s application process for the new range gTLDs (generic top-level domains). The application process has subsequently triggered the first wave of top-level domains (TLDs) for release, following a mandatory ‘Sunrise’ period.

The 30-day ‘Sunrise’ term gives trademark holders the chance to register their related domains. After which, the pre-registration period called 'Landrush' opens for users who want to secure a new domain extension for their site.

New TLDs coming soon

Since the registration of the new range of gTLDs, fourteen new top-level domains have become available for registration, some of which are industry specific - giving you the edge over other competitors in the internet space. There are fourteen new TLDs which are available for registration in Sunrise, after which, they will become available to the general public.
