The .DATA domain is expected to offer easily recognised online home to companies associated with data storage and services. The new .DATA extension will provide online storage and application services making it easier for consumers and service providers to find each other online.
.DATA is a new generic Top-Level Domain (Computer / Tech 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 .DATA domain extension is divided into three phases: Pre-registration, Sunrise and Landrush. After Landrush period, the .DATA 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 .DATA. 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 .DATA 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 .DATA 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 .DATA will be available until General availability.
With information processing becoming more important than ever, the new .DATA domain should be instrumental in clearly labelling any website related to data. Whether for the purpose of making pertinent business decisions, analysing trends or assisting researchers in exploring new possibilities, the .DATA name-place will provide an online home for any website seeking to distinguish itself for the qualitative values.
The .DATA domain will benefit economists, business experts, developers, engineers or scientists wishing to establish their area of expertise online. The new extension will improve search engine results and generate more relevant traffic to websites with the .DATA address. Finding specific information will also be easy for all Internet users.
