A domain within the .SITE Top Level Domain (TLD) is a must have for new businesses seeking a trendy new URL in one of the new Top Level Domains. In fact, in June 2012, Sedo, "The World's Largest Domain Marketplace", released its list of the top 10 most value new Top Level Domains. Number one on the list was .SHOP… and number 3 was dot site. A domain name within the dot site TLD can help businesses, organizations, or individuals create a memorable domain name for a reasonable price.
There were five companies that applied to create the .SITE TLD: Charleston Road Registry (owned by Google, Inc); Corn Mill, LLC (a Donutes, Inc. company); Top Level Domain Holdings Limited; DotSite Inc.; and Interlink Co, Ltd. All five applicants, if granted approval to operate the .Site Top Level Domain, intend to operate the dot site TLD as an open registry, meaning that domain names within the dot site TLD would be available for purchase by the general public. Each of the five companies that applied for the dot site TLD has been assigned a Prioritization Number by ICANN. the Prioritization number is used by ICANN to determine the order in which applicants are evaluated. The highest Prioritization number in this contention set was 1544, which was the Prioritization Number assigned to DotSite Inc. This means that all five TLDs in the contention set will have to wait for the Dot Site Inc. applicaiton to bve evaluated by ICAN before the TLDs in this contention set can move forward in the application process.
The dot site TLD is sure to be one of the most popular new TLDs introduced as part of this application round. Pre-register for your domain name in the dot SITE tld today!
How Does It Work?
- Pre-Register Your Domain Name.
- When each Top Level Domain announces their pricing structure, we'll email you with that information.
- Corfirm your order and provide payment information.
- DotAnything.co Inc. will put in a purchase request on your behalf as soon as domain name sales start.
- You may transfer your domain name to your preferred registrar.
is a Pre-registration?
When you pre-register for a domain name, it’s like adding it to a shopping list. DotAnything.co Inc. will keep your shopping list for you until pricing for each top level domain is announced to the public. At that time, DotAnything.co Inc. will email you and ask you to confirm your pre-registration request and provide payment in advance for every domain that you have pre-registered. DotAnything.co Inc. will put in a purchase request on your behalf as soon as domain name sales begin. DotAnything.co Inc. will refund the purchase price of any domains that do not result in an actual Registration.
- How much will my domain
Per domain pricing for each top level domain has not yet been announced. Get New TLDs will email you with per domain pricing for each of the domains that you have pre-registered prior to the General Availability date.
- Can I cancel my pre-registration?
Pre-registration requests are not final until after your pre-registration is confirmed and you have provided payment information.
- When will I get my domain
No one can guarantee that you will get every domain name that you pre-register for. No one even knows for sure which top level domains will be approved by ICANN, and which will not be. It is estimated that future new top level domain operators from this application round may begin selling domain names as early as 2014. Get New TLDs Inc. will email pre-registration customers with the expected “go live" date for each TLD that they have pre-registered for when this information becomes available.
- What types of domains can I pre-register?
You may pre-register generic names, such as names that are not trademarked. You may not pre-register for Geographic Names, Trademarked names, or names that are on the Names Collission list. Learn more about our Pre-Registration Guidelines.
