.quebec is entering the Golive phase today.

Note that .quebec is reserved to registrants with a connection to the the Quebecois community. Don't be surprised, therefore, when you are prompted to provide some additional information: you'll be asked to provide a brief explanation of why you're registering a .quebec and what you intend to do with the domain. Your response will be forwarded to the .quebec registry, at their request.

A one-year registration of a .quebec domain will cost $43.78 at A rates.

The list is below, accompanied by the corresponding Sunrise, Landrush and GoLive prices of a one-year registration, all at A rates:

.BRUSSELS and .VLAANDEREN are entering into the phase reserved for Belgians.


This period runs from November 13th to December 15th, 2014.


Any Belgian national that has a Belgian electronic ID card may make a registration request, whether or not he or she resides in Brussels.


However, only domain names containing the first and last name of the applicant will be accepted:

For example, if your name is René Magritte, you would be able to register one of the following combinations:

     magritte.brussels: last name
     magritterene.brussels: last name + first name
     renemagritte.brussels: first name + last name
     magritter.brussels: last name + first initial
     rmagritte.brussels: first initial + last name


Some accented characters are authorized, so renémagritte.brussels would also be a valid request for example.

You must first go to the Registry's website at nic.brussels and use the e-ID-Wizard.

Once your eID has been validated, a reservation code will be sent to you by the Registry. Please save this code, since you must send it to Gandi's customer support in order to complete your registration.

This code is only valid for 7 days, so you will want to be sure to act quickly. If you miss the deadline, you will need to start the process over from the beginning, and hope that someone with the same name does not get it before you, since it is still sold on the first-come, first-served basis.


If you would like to participate in third phase, you will need to chose the "Landrush" registration phase type between November 13th and December 15th 2014. Your order will then change its state to "error", while waiting for the reception of your e-ID, which will be validated by our support team.

If you do not provide this before the end of the phase, the operation will be automatically cancelled on December 16th!

The cost of registration during this period is €1.50 excl. VAT for one year, under A rates.

Another new gTLD is entering the Sunrise phase, where it will remain until January 3, 2015. The Golive phase will begin January 14, 2015 at 8 a.m. PST (4 p.m. UTC).

The Sunrise, Landrush and Golive prices of a one-year registration, all at A rates, are listed below:

  • .world: $161.93 | $181.93 | $38.34

Remember, the Sunrise phase is for TMCH-registered trademark holders. Contact our corporate support team if you have a TMCH-registered trademark (or would like help registering your existing trademark at TMCH) 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.
