.shop domain registration

The new .shop gTLD has been proposed to create a secure environment on the net dedicated to the business sector, particularly the online purchasing and shopping experience, in order to facilitate this service that is currently very popular and diffused among Internet users.

The .shop domain can also be used by companies, businesses and stores that want to develop an online sales activity for their products.

.shop Sunrise Rules

The Sunrise of .shop 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 .shopdomain, 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.

More than one request for the same .shop domain name will be settled by an auction between the contenders, trademark holders.
