The .BIKE domain names are available for registration. You can now search and order your desired .BIKE domains through our on-line order system. Please click the button below to see the regulations and prices for the .BIKE names.

.BIKE - general information

The goal of .BIKE is to offer first choice domain registration to businesses, organisations, clubs and individuals seeking to enhance their .BIKE-oriented Internet experience. The sport community is abundant and global. It spans from international associations to sports clubs and individual sport enthusiasts all over the world. While the .SPORT domain can be naturally embraced by anyone interested or engaged in sports, the .BIKE extension will appeal to those individuals, community groups, businesses and organizations who seek to give their biking experience a lift. The .BIKE domain is intended for use by cycling communities and businesses.

.BIKE is a new generic Top-Level Domain (Sport 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 .BIKE domain extension is divided into three phases: Pre-registration, Sunrise and Landrush. After Landrush period, the .BIKE domain will become public and registrations will be available to everyone (General availability).

Pre-registration
(active for non-trademark holders till General availability)
A free and non-binding way to get a head start securing the new domain name. Indication of an interest in a given domain and eventually registering name(s) in .BIKE when registration becomes available.
Sunrise
(approx duration 30-60 days)
Time at the launch of the .BIKE domain before public domain registration for the .BIKE begins, allowing brand/trademark owners to register, or block related domain names. See our Managed TMCH Submission service.
Landrush
(approx duration 30 days)
The initial launch phase for broad general distribution when anyone (usually companies) can submit a request for a domain name under the .BIKE. Landrush registrations are typically NOT first-come, first-served. Duplicate requests are auctioned between the parties desiring an identical name.
General availability
(perpetual after Landrush)
Finally, domain names under the .BIKE will be available to the general public, at normal retail prices on a first-come, first-served basis. Applicants may attempt to register previously pre-registered domains within .BIKE. When a domain is registered, it is officially reserved and registered in real time.

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 .BIKE. The use of our gTLD pre-registration module is free of charge and without any obligation to buy later on. 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. Please note that pre-registration of .BIKE is not a queue. Although we will try our best, we cannot provide any kind of guarantee that pre-registration will eventually lead to successful registration of your chosen domain within the .BIKE extension.
If you wish to secure your rights to a specific domain name, please choose our Managed TMCH Submission service which offers trademark owners a simple yet efficient way to monitor and protect their brands. It is also the only way by which trademark owners can participate in designated Sunrise periods.
For non-trademark holders Pre-registration of .BIKE will be available until General availability.
