.PHOTO is the new home for digital photography online. The .PHOTO domain aims at the global photography community and is suitable for professional photographers as well as amateurs, photo blogs, magazines, and photo galleries. With a .PHOTO extension photo enthusiasts can share their works with millions of Internet users across the globe. .PHOTO is perfect for businesses, organisations, and individuals. Museums, galleries, photo studios and print shops can all benefit from a .PHOTO address.
.PHOTO is a new generic Top-Level Domain (Computer / Tech 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 .PHOTO domain extension is divided into three phases: Pre-registration, Sunrise and Landrush. After Landrush period, the .PHOTO 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 .PHOTO. 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 .PHOTO 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 .PHOTO 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 .PHOTO will be available until General availability.
The purpose of the new .PHOTO gTLD is to provide people passionate about photography with a meaningful and memorable namespace online. With a .PHOTO address websites providing photography-oriented content will be easier to find and they will gain greater recognition among visitors. A .PHOTO domain name could enhance your website's visibility and increase consumer confidence in your brand. Registering a .PHOTO domain will help to distinguish your website among thousands of .com's and .net's and will let the visitors to your website know who you are and what you do. This niche extension could be used by individuals to showcase their personal portfolios or businesses and institutions to display someone else's works.
