.XXX end of the Sunrise period

End of the current Sunrise period

  • If you have not yet taken advantage of the Sunrise period, you have until Monday afternoon (GMT) to block the xxx extension for your domain for the reduced price of €150 (excl. VAT) for a minimum of 10 years (versus €65 excl. VAT per year after that date)
  • If you have registered your domain name as a type-B applicant (to block a domain) and the validating agent asked us for more documents in order to validate your application, you have until November 25th to send them to us. If nobody contacted you, then everything is going well, and you will receive a confirmation of the domain's being blocked from us in November.
  • If you have registered your domain name as a type C applicant (pornographic use), you will need to demonstrate your rights to existing qualifying websites, and you also have until the 25th of November to proceed with this validation. We resent the mail this morning describing how to do this. You also need to validate the domain (see mail sent by the registry), with the acceptance of the charter.
  • Finally, if you have registered your domain name as a type A applicant (pornographic use), you also have until November 25th to reply to the registry's mail in order to proceed with the charter acceptance procedure.

Beginning of the Landrush phase

Starting on October 31st at 15:00 GMT you will be able to pre-reserve domain names in order to participate in the Landrush phase, which is from November 8th 2011 to November 25th 2011. The rate will be €120 per domain name for 1 year under A rates. This phase is reserved to members of the porn community, and you will not need to provide any proofs other than the validation of the charter on the website of the registry and your commitment to host a pornographic website. There will not be any first-come, first-served process used during this period. The registry will take all orders, and if there is only one for a domain, you will get it. If there are several requests for a domain, an auction will be held by the registry that will allow you the possibility of winning the domain.

General opening on December 6th, at 15:00 GMT

Beginning on November 25th at 15:00, you will be able to pre-register your domains for the general opening on December 6th. Starting on this date, the rule of first-come, first-served will apply. If you missed the Sunrise period and you would like to protect your trademark, name, domain, etc, you will then be able to once again do so without having to provide any proofs, at a rate of €65 excl. VAT per year under A rates. The domains will be inactive. For the porn community, after the registration, you just need to click on the link sent to you by the registry and accept their charter in order to actively use your domain name.
