PRIORITY REGISTRATION BEGINS JANUARY 26TH, 2018
The first day .nowruz domains are available to the general public will begin on January 26, 2018.
During the next 60 days, until March 27th, everyone that has been eagerly waiting for the opportunity to get their hands on a .nowruz domain will be able to be first in line by joining the Priority Registration phase (commonly referred to as ”Sunrise”).
In spite of the name, there is however no real ”rush” to be first! All orders submitted will be considered at the same time. After this 10 day period domains that have only received one request will be allocated for immediate use, while the ones that received multiple applications with the same .nowruz domain will be allocated through an auction process. On February XXth .nowruz will enter General Availability, and domains will be assigned on a first-come-first-served basis from that point on.
After years of work, we have finally reached the key milestone that we have been looking forward to. Reflecting on the work leading up to now, we enter this period with great anticipation since .nowruz has been very well received. It reinforces our confidence in the value of the extension we’re bringing to market and its ability to inspire people to think differently and let their creativity flow.
Our feet are still solidly on the ground as the real work begins now. But we are happy to be able to count on the great support of our Registrars, Partners and Pioneers from all over the world.
2018 is set to be a great year as they have impressive plans to bring their solution to more communities throughout the world.
We are extremely inspired by the ideas shared with us so far and look forward to hearing from .nowruz domain owners in their creative uses of the domain names, innovative technologies employed and future stories that inspire us along with the people and communities .nowruz represents. Go on then, the wait is finally over so get your .nowruz now and show the world the celebration of a new Nowruz!
