.NOWRUZ Domain Name Registrations – Trademarks

Please note that the .nowruz Registry does not accept any domain name registration orders directly. All domain name registration orders need to be submitted through one of our Accredited Registrar (or one of their Resellers).

Many Registrars offer the possibility of placing a pre-registration order for one or more of the phases of the launch, and submit your order to us (the Registry) when the relevant phase opens.

Consider also that while most domains have a standard price, a small number of high-value domains are considered Premium and have higher price tags attached.

Your Registrars will be able to provide you full information on the cost of the domain name you wish to register.

YOU CAN READ ABOUT EACH PHASE BY CLICKING ONE OF THE LINKS BELOW:

1. TRADEMARK PRIORITY DOMAIN NAME REGISTRATION PHASE (SUNRISE)

The .nowruz launch starts officially on January 26th, 2018 with a Priority Registration Phase reserved for holders of registered Trademarks (commonly referred to as ”Sunrise”). You can submit your domain name registration order through any of the Registrars participating in the .nowruz Sunrise.

In order to participate in this phase, you will need to get your Trademark pre-validated by the Trademark Clearing House (TMCH). Once validated, the TMCH will provide you with a so-called Signed Mark Data (SMD) file which contains all the necessary information required to submit your Sunrise domain name registration order.

If you have previously participated in the Sunrise of a new TLDs that launched in the last couple of years, you probably already have a valid SMD file.

In case of doubt, your Registrar should be able to assist you in verifying whether your Trademarks are already registered in the Trademark Clearing House. If needed, most Registrars can also assist in getting your Trademark registered in the Trademark Clearing House for an additional fee.

The Trademark Priority Registration Phase will run for 60 days, and the last day to submit an order for this phase is March 27th, 2018 (please note that registering a Trademark in the TMCH typically takes at least a week… So don’t wait until the last minute!).

Once the Sunrise phase closes, we will review all the valid orders received. If a specific domain name receives only one valid request, the domain name will be registered in the name of that applicant and activated.

Your domain name Registrars will notify you of the status of your order and, if needed, provide you with the relevant details to participate in the auction. Please note that the price the winner of the auction will pay is separate and does not include the domain name Registration fee that the Registrar charges for the registration of the domain name.

2. GENERAL AVAILABILITY

On March the 27th, 2018, the launch of .NOWRUZ will be officially over as we enter General Availability. From this point on, if the .NOWRUZ domain you want is available, you can register it with your favourite Registrar and start using right away… Quite handy for those great ideas you usually get at 3 in the morning and that just cannot wait!
