.xyz domain registration

The new .xyz domain has been proposed with the intention of creating an online platform without a theme or category, to broaden Internet users' choices and increase the competitiveness of new domains on the Net.

The.xyz extension is composed of three letters, like the most common generic domains already widely used on the net, such as .com, .biz and .org.

The new .xyz domain comes from the idea that our alphabet ends with the letters "XYZ", and so, why not end a domain name the same way? With .xyz.

The new .xyz extension is one of the first generic platforms and is unrestricted, for people all over the world, and can be used to share your passions, cultivate knowledges, provide information and services, and express yourself.
Registering a .xyz domain can also be useful for company websites, new product pages, microsites, promotional sites, recruitment portals and so many other business support services.

.xyz Sunrise Rules

The Sunrise of .xyz domain is a limited period of time during which holders of trademarks may preregister names that are the same or similar to their trademark in a privileged way and at an additional cost before it is sold to the public.

To participate in the Sunrise phase of the .xyzdomain, the trademark must be validated by a third party designated by ICANN: the Trademark Clearinghouse (TMCH).
Dominiando is an official TMCH agent and can, therefore, carry out brand validation procedures of the trademark on your behalf.

This validation is mandatory to participate in the Sunrise of all new domains and the same validation can be reused for registration during the Sunrise periods of all extensions that allow it.

More than one request for the same .xyz domain name will be settled by an auction between the contenders, trademark holders.
