Pre-registering is as easy as 1-2-3
Choose the domains you want and we'll let you know the moment they're available for pre-registration.
Improve your chances of getting your domain by pre-registering it before it’s generally available.
We’ll let you know when the name is yours so you can set up your website or email.
When can I get these domains?
The competition for some of the new domains will be fierce. So to increase your chances of getting the domain name you want, we suggest you pre-register.
For all pre-registration phases, GoDaddy will automatically submit your application to the registry the instant the phase opens. Which means you’ll be at the front of the line to claim your new name.
Please Note: Pre-registration does not guarantee you will get your domain. If we’re unable to get it for you, we’ll refund your registration fee. However, application fees for Priority Pre-registration and Trademark Owners are non-refundable.
Get a jump on others who also want your domain by submitting your registration before the new domain becomes generally available.
Pay a premium to submit your registration request ahead of standard pre-registration applicants and before the domain becomes generally available.
Exclusively for trademark holders. Register ahead of all other groups. Proof of trademark rights is required.
What are TLDs and new TLDs?
TLD stands for top-level domain. A domain is what you type into the address bar of your Web browser to get to a website, like www.GoDaddy.com. New TLDs refer to new domain extensions that are about to become available.
Why are there new TLDs?
New domain extensions have been created because finding a relevant, available domain name can be difficult. ICANN is releasing hundreds of new domain extensions to increase availability and change how people find information online.
Why do new TLDs matter to me?
New domain extensions let you create a relevant name that defines your website, brand, business, group or organization. Registering a new TLD that represents your market can increase customer trust and set you apart from competitors.
When will new TLDs be available?
We expect the first groups of new TLDs to launch in November 2013. Check back for more information on release dates, registration requirements, pre-registration and other important details.
How is ICANN involved?
ICANN is the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, a non-profit group responsible for the coordination and oversight of the global Internet system. You can find out more about them at www.icann.org.
What are the new TLD registration phases: Trademarks Owners, Priority Pre-registration, Pre-registration and General Availability?
Each registration phase has a defined date for acceptance and processing. The first registration period is always reserved for Trademark Owners. The second phase is Priority Pre-registration – for a premium, you can increase your chances of getting a non-trademarked domain. Pre-registration comes next and allows you to get a jump on General Availability, which is open to the public. During the final phase, names are awarded on a first come, first served basis.
