Don't we all love to get things .FREE? Goods and services, education and training, real time or virtual transactions – consumers are always interested in finding .FREE offers. Addressing both businesses and consumers, the .FREE extension is a meaningful message tag attached to the internet address that can heavily influence consumer decisions. Perfect for giving away promotional items or advertising sponsored downloads, this new gTLD is also great for philanthropic causes and freedom-oriented content.
.FREE is a new generic Top-Level Domain (E-commerce & Consumer 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 .FREE domain extension is divided into three phases: Pre-registration, Sunrise and Landrush. After Landrush period, the .FREE 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 .FREE. 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 .FREE 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 .FREE 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 .FREE will be available until General availability.
.FREE has the potential to attract both businesses and bargain-hunters. .FREE is hard to beat with any other offer, especially in marketing. Free samples, free shipping and handling, free gift at registration, buy one get one free – one should never underestimate the power of .FREE. A great number of applicants has already expressed their interest in the .FREE name-place. It can give any commercial website a competitive edge.
But .FREE has more meanings than without charge. It also refers to our autonomy and independence. Freedom, means more than samples and giveaways. .FREE has the potential to embrace any change agents proclaiming freedom be it human rights groups, patriots, social reformers, champions of the imprisoned or anti-animal cruelty activists.
