A new era for the Internet has finally dawned, with the first new generic top level domains (gTLDs) being technically delegated to the namespace. Registrants will be able to purchase domain names in the following new spaces in the coming weeks and months:
شبكة – Arabic for “web/network”
Онлайн – Cyrillic for “online”
Сайт – Cyrillic for “site”
游戏 – Chinese for “game(s)”
Further new gTLDs will be gradually added to the naming system, starting with technical delegation and then a mandatory sunrise period. During sunrise, rights holders can register domain names corresponding to their marks before registrations are thrown open on a first-come first-served basis. To ensure robust brand protection for our clients we are official agents for the Trademark Clearinghouse – the centralised repository of validated registered trade marks designed to safeguard registered rights in all the new spaces.
Demys’ clients can also log in to our exclusive gTLD dashboard to check the status of any application and see when it is due to launch. Demys only use official sources of information rather than registry press-releases or other informal notices – this ensures our data is as accurate as possible.
Clients can also use our dashboard to browse through all coming gTLDs by industry sector and other client-focussed categories to help inform their strategies. As well as speaking to their usual account manager, clients can keep up to date through our social media channels.
