The .NYC extension has entered the General Availability phase, therefore now it is possible to order/apply for domain names within the: .NYC extension/suffix. Please contact our support via e-mail or use the contact form in order to buy .NYC domains.

.NYC - general information

The .NYC domain will offer unique domain registration to the New York City's government, businesses and to its constituents. The new extension is intended to be utilized to promote local businesses and tourism as well as to generate revenue. It will also enable New Yorkers to easily find the services provided by the city government.

New York City and the state of New York is one of the most attractive tourist destinations in the world with about 50 million visitors per year. New York has a significant impact upon global commerce, finance, art, media, fashion, and entertainment. With the new .NYC top-level domain, the city's government, organizations, businesses and residents will be provided an online identity that intuitively but clearly associates them with the City of New York. The new name-space will also be beneficial for community organizations as well as innovators, entrepreneurs, education centres or any other activities related to the unparalleled quality of life in .NYC.

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

It is also the only way by which trademark owners can participate in designated Sunrise periods.
