The .GIFT extension has entered the General Availability phase, therefore now it is possible to order/apply for domain names within the: .GIFT extension/suffix. Please contact our support via e-mail or use the contact form in order to buy .GIFT domains.
The new .GIFT domain is targeted towards any website offering content related to gift giving. It is perfect for gift and souvenir shops of any kind as well as informational sites offering advice on selecting proper gifts or gift wrapping. Registration is available to businesses, organisations, and individuals, and there are no restrictions.
.GIFT 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 .GIFT domain extension is divided into three phases: Pre-registration, Sunrise and Landrush. After Landrush period, the .GIFT 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 .GIFT. 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 .GIFT 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 .GIFT 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 .GIFT will be available until General availability.
.GIFT is a great extension that can attract all those Internet users that look for advice on getting the right gift for the occasion. The .GIFT domain can also be used for promoting corporate gifts or providing culture-specific information on the art of gift giving. .GIFT is also perfect for bloggs or discussion forums where Internet users can exchange information related to gift-giving. If you offer gift baskets, gift certificates, or any other gift-oriented content, this new extension can also be a great alternative to similar .COM domain names.
