The .GROUP domain names are available for registration. You can now search and order your desired .GROUP domains through our on-line order system. Please click the button below to see the regulations and prices for the .GROUP names.
The purpose of the .GROUP domain is to offer individuals and other entities who are involved in collaborative activities an easily recognisable name-place that will distinguish them on the Internet. Any group including commercial and non-commercial ventures as well as special interest groups, various communities or a consumer niche can benefit from the .GROUP extension and enhance their online presence with a relevant domain.
.GROUP is a new generic Top-Level Domain (People & Lifestyle 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 .GROUP domain extension is divided into three phases: Pre-registration, Sunrise and Landrush. After Landrush period, the .GROUP 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 .GROUP. 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 .GROUP 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 .GROUP 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 .GROUP will be available until General availability.
With a wide range of groups, both physical and digital, it should only be easier to establish a presence on the Internet with the .GROUP extension. Easy to remember and with a clear message, .GROUP addresses will provide a relevant Internet space to any website looking to embrace the .GROUP spirit. The new extension is sure to benefit any group across all economic, public, and private sectors.
Gaining visibility, promoting a business, spreading the message or personalising – whatever the purpose of the group, the new gTLD will enhance the website's image online. The .GROUP domain will be perfect for all kinds of groups: business, sports, volunteer, co-ops, therapy, reading or charity.
To establish your group activities online with a memorable domain name, consider pre-registering a .GROUP domain name that is perfect for you. It is free of charge and non-binding.
