The language of sports is universal – spoken across different continents and cultures. Until now, there has not been a specific domain extension for the sports community that would bring together .SPORT enthusiasts from different parts of the world. With the global sport community being so large – ranging from international sport associations to bigger and smaller clubs all over the world – .SPORT extension promises more than just a game- or hobby-oriented domain name. The .SPORT offers a secure virtual space for organisations, individuals and businesses involved in sports to display their connection.
.SPORT is a new generic Top-Level Domain (Sport 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 .SPORT domain extension is divided into three phases: Pre-registration, Sunrise and Landrush. After Landrush period, the .SPORT 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 .SPORT. 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 .SPORT 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 .SPORT 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 .SPORT will be available until General availability.
