The ICANN process of introducing new top level domains continues.
The General Availability of the gay-domain is postponed because of the corona crisis, probably to middle of September.
The Gay-Domain owns a special Sunrise Period II, at which owners of trade marks, which are not registered at the Tradmark Clearinghaus, may register Gay-Domains.
The Sunrise II will open as planned on April 6. The registry will leave it open through August, a week ahead of of the Early Access Period.
At the Sunrise Period II of the Gay-Domains from April 6th to the end of August, the owners of registered trademarks can apply, even if their trademark is not registered at the Trademark Clearinghouse.
A standard Gay-Domain costs 2490 US-Dollar at the sunrise period. It is renewed annually for the same amount.
Early Access Period
Your company name is not registered as a trademark or your trademark, which you use, is unregistered. The Early Access Period of Gay-Domains is made for you at this case. You can register your domain name prior the others, which use the General Availabilty.
The Early Access Period works as a "dutch auction". Registration prices start higher and then decrease daily. If you are interested at prices and conditions, you should send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org .
The general availability of the Gay-Domains begins on September.
You can pre-register your name at the Gay-Domain here. Pre-registration is free, but mandatory. If we secure the name you want, you will have to pay the domain fee.
Each standard Gay-Domain costs 45 US-Dollar/year at the general availability.
The registry donates 20% of its income to the partner organizations GLAAD and CenterLink.
The main arguments for registering a Gay-Domain are:
Every registration of a Gay-Domain is a commitment to diversity and an open society
There are good reasons to register a Gay-Domain for commercial reasons. Numerous studies show that the "gay community" is a relatively young and consumer-friendly community. Anyone who registers a Gay-Domain picks up the community where it is located.
