This Wednesday, 24 September, .direct and .place are entering the Golive phase, when they will become available for registration by all at normal prices.
If you're reading this before GoLive begins on 2014-09-24 at 9am PDT (16:00 UTC), know that you can still pay extra to secure your domain during the Landrush phase, which ends at 8:59am PDT. If you want the domain but don't want to pay extra, we strongly encourage you to pre-register now, and we'll submit your order at the earliest possible moment.
The list is below, accompanied by the corresponding Landrush and Golive prices of a one-year registration, all at A rates:
Following a network incident that took place in our offices based in Luxembourg, our international team was unable for a couple of hours to address customer requests as usual.
We have re-distributed these requests to the Paris, Taiwan and San Francisco teams. The surplus load is now being handled and we are confident that the answer time will get back to normal within the next days. Please accept our apologies for this temporary delay.
Remember, the Sunrise phase is for TMCH-registered trademark holders. Contact our corporate support team if you have (or would like us to help you get) a TMCH-registered trademark in order to register one of these new gTLDs during Sunrise. If you are not among the trademarked, you can still pre-register for the Landrush or GoLive phases. We'll submit your order at the earliest possible moment – as soon as your chosen phase begins – for the best chance of success.
About the GoLive phase:
Note: You don't need to wait until GoLive begins to register your domain: we strongly encourage you to pre-register now. We will then submit the order on your behalf at the earliest possible moment, in the order they are received. As always, if the registration is not successful, we will automatically refund your prepaid account (and will refund to your external funding source upon request).
If you want to be absolutely sure to get your desired domain, you can register it during Landrush at a higher price (see above).
You can see the dates for the Landrush and GoLive phases by following the link above to the procing page, and clicking on "Dates".
Four new gTLDs are entering the General Availability phrase today, and are now available for registration by all at standard prices. The GoLive prices of a one-year registration at A rates are as follows:
The .paris TLD will first be released in Sunrise to five groups, by order of priority (9 September to 11 November):
Priority 1: Classic TMCH Sunrise
Priority 2: Public institutions in the Île-de-France region
Priority 3: Trademarks and geographic names
Priority 4: Companies and associations
Priority 5: Landrush
In other words, .paris domains are available to any interested party, but priority is given to physical and moral persons with a good-faith presence in or connection to the Parisian region at the moment (and for the whole duration) of registration.
During this phase, .paris domains will be available at the rate of $336.39.
.paris is scheduled to enter the General Availability phase on 2 December 2014 at the price of $52.00.
