.college domain registration

The new .college extension has been introduced to identify and give greater recognition to colleges online.

The new .college domain does not limit its scope of application and therefore can be used by all colleges and universities, regardless of the faculties and subjects dealt with, as well as by schools and sites that provide online education and instruction services.

Registering a .college domain will also provide greater confidence and security for all users who will link to a particular college or university website.

.college Sunrise Rules

The Sunrise of .college domain is a limited period of time during which holders of trademarks may preregister names that are the same or similar to their trademark in a privileged way and at an additional cost before it is sold to the public.

To participate in the Sunrise phase of the .collegedomain, the trademark must be validated by a third party designated by ICANN: the Trademark Clearinghouse (TMCH).
Dominiando is an official TMCH agent and can, therefore, carry out brand validation procedures of the trademark on your behalf.

This validation is mandatory to participate in the Sunrise of all new domains and the same validation can be reused for registration during the Sunrise periods of all extensions that allow it.

Applications received during the Sunrise period of the .college domains will be examined on a first come, first served basis.
