It's week 5 of the new gTLD launches, and choices abound!
This week's four new arrivals will kick off, as always, with a trademark protection period (Sunrise phase) beginning on Christmas eve and lasting 60 days.
This phase will be followed by the seven-day priority registration period (and by "priority" they mean "pricier") starting 26 February 2014, before being opened up for regular registration at standard prices on 5 March 2014.
To see prices or reserve a domain, see the TLD info pages below:
The registry managing .SX, the official TLD of Sint Maarten (and unofficially the de facto sexy TLD, at least until .sex becomes available) is offering an exceptional discount of 50% for all new .SX registrations from 25 September 2013 to 30 March 2014.
We are happy to announce a drop in prices for .PT domains of $3, effective immediately, on all rate scales.
The .PT TLD now costs $29.00 (at A rates) instead of its earlier price of $32.
.PT, the national ccTLD of Portugal, has been open to registration by residents of any country since 1 May 2012. Registrants are still required to provide an ID number, but it doesn't have to be a Portugese ID. The first major change is that it's no longer necessary to have a commercial or personal name related to the domain name being registered!
Some additional details:
If you are a "corporate person" (business, association, etc) registered in the European Economic Community, you will have to provide an intra-community VAT number. If your business is located outside Europe, you will need to provide another fiscal identification number.
If you are a Portugese citizen, you will have to provide your Fiscal Code. Otherwise, you'll need to provide your passport number.
Get used to it as it will become frequent in 2014: new extensions are available today!
As always, those 4 new extensions will begin with the trademark protection phase (Sunrise), that will last 60 days.
That phase will be followed by the priority "Landrush" registration phase (which means that the registration prices will be higher), during 7 days (19/02/2014), before the general opening (26/02/2014).
