.HOLIDAY - general information

A holiday is a day designated for special festivities or recreation observed by individuals, governments or religious groups that regard the observance of it relevant. Applicable in a variety of contexts, .the new .HOLIDAY domain can enhance the online visibility of products, services, special events and deals offered during a specific holiday. Businesses offering .HOLIDAY-related merchandise or services will find the new domain extension very useful in attracting those Internet users that affiliate themselves with a specific holiday.

.HOLIDAY is a new generic Top-Level Domain (Travel & Leisure 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 .HOLIDAY domain extension is divided into three phases: Pre-registration, Sunrise and Landrush. After Landrush period, the .HOLIDAY 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 .HOLIDAY when registration becomes available.
Sunrise
(approx duration 30-60 days)
Time at the launch of the .HOLIDAY domain before public domain registration for the .HOLIDAY 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 .HOLIDAY. 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 .HOLIDAY 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 .HOLIDAY. 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 .HOLIDAY. 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 .HOLIDAY 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 .HOLIDAY extension.
