Frequently asked questions about

Which launch phase should I choose?

The decision depends on whether you have a registered trademark and your budget. If you have a registered trademark, the Sunrise phase is ideal, but you'll need to register your trademark with the Trademark Clearinghouse (TMCH). Our team can assist you with that process. On the other hand, if you don't have a trademark and are willing to pay extra to secure your desired domain name, Early Access is the recommended phase. Early Access follows a scheduled pricing structure, with earlier days being pricier and costs decreasing significantly in later days. In the last stage of the launch, General Availability, domain names are accessible to the public on a first-come, first-served basis.

If you're still uncertain about which launch phase to register in, take a look at our Launch Phase Infographic, designed to assist you in making an informed decision.

What are the standard launch phases of a new domain launch?

Sunrise - This initial phase is exclusively for trademark holders registered with the Trademark Clearinghouse, allowing them priority registration.

Early Access - Open to everyone, the Early Access phase permits individuals the opportunity to secure a domain name by paying a fee before General Availability. Early Access typically lasts for seven days, with registration fees decreasing throughout the week, along with your odds of securing a specific name as the week progresses.

General Availability - During this phase, any available domain name can be registered by anyone. General Availability Pre-Orders will be automatically processed once the phase begins, offering the best opportunity to secure your preferred domain name.

Does a pre-order guarantee the registration of my domain name?
When a phase begins, we instantly submit pre-ordered domain names for registration. However, it's important to note that several factors may impact your ability to secure your desired domain. It's possible that your chosen name could be registered in an earlier phase or by another registrar. Nevertheless, we have a remarkable track record of successfully registering domain names before others.
