.PHOTOS is the new digital hub for photography online. The .PHOTOS domain is dedicated to the global photography community and is perfect for professional photographers as well as amateurs, photo magazines, blogs, and photo galleries. With a .PHOTOS domain photography enthusiasts can share their works with other Internet users across the world. .PHOTOS is suitable for businesses, organisations, and individuals. Museums, galleries, photo studios and print shops can all benefit from a .PHOTOS address.
.PHOTOS 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 .PHOTOS domain extension is divided into three phases: Pre-registration, Sunrise and Landrush. After Landrush period, the .PHOTOS 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 .PHOTOS. 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 .PHOTOS 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 .PHOTOS 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 .PHOTOS will be available until General availability.
The purpose of the new .PHOTOS domain is to provide photography enthusiasts with a meaningful and memorable namespace online.
