    Trademark Sunrise .art – is a special period that provides current brand and trademarks owners the opportunity to secure their trademarks under the new top level domain. The fee for registration during this period is usually higher as trademarks will need to be verified and cleared.

    Landrush – a short registration period for entities and individuals who do not own a trademark in the name they wish to register. It is intended for highly sought-after generic .art domains and are usually priced significantly higher than registering during general availability. If more than one landrush application is received for the same .art domain, the .art domain will usually go to auction in which the applicants will have the chance to bid for the domain.

    Premium or Reserved Names – A registry can and will withhold .art domains names from open registrations that are considered premium domains, which are names that are highly desired or unique. These .art domains with this premium status will eventually be auctioned to the highest bidder.
