The .wien Sunrise started on 11 February and will continue until 1 May 2014. During this phase, only owners of a trademark registered in Austria and via the TMCH will be able to register .wien domains.
For the rest of us, Landrush begins 2 June and will last one month, followed by General Availability (aka GoLive) starting on 15 July 2014.
The Registry's rules stipulate that any owner of a .wien domain must have an economic, cultural, touristic, historical, social, or other connection to Vienna, which is a pretty generous amount of leeway if you ask us. (Finally, this fondness of schnitzel – nay, this love – is paying off!)
Prices for a .WIEN at A rates for the first year of registration are as follows:
- Sunrise (11 Feb to 1 May): $1,254.68
- Landrush (2 June to 2 July): $214.68
- General Availability/GoLive (15 July 2014): $37.96
