.AIRFORCE is a new generic Top-Level Domain (Business Niche gTLD) announced by ICANN, the Internet domain authority. The New gTLD Program`s goal is to enhance competition, innovation, and consumer choice. You can see it as your opportunity to get that perfect domain which has been taken by someone else. The introduction of .AIRFORCE domain extension is divided into three phases: Pre-registration, Sunrise and Landrush. After Landrush period, the .AIRFORCE domain will become public and registrations will be available to everyone (General availability).
If you are not a brand owner, before General availability you are allowed to take part only in the first phase and pre-register your desired domain names within .AIRFORCE.

We will keep you updated on future developments related to your preregistered domains, including information about pricing and regulations, once these have been announced by the registry responsible for a given gTLD.
