Before the domains are released to the general public, established businesses are given a chance to claim domain names that they find similar or identical to their trademarks or products. This is done during the sunrise period. Only well established businesses are given this opportunity with all participants typically having registered trademarks that have been around for at least a year. The sunrise period gives big and established businesses a chance to protect their interests by registering generic domain names that they deem valuable to their interests before anyone else does.

Following the sunrise period, the TLD is opened to the general public and applications for domain names are accepted from just about anyone who wants to have a website hosted on the TLD. This is a period that is known as the Landrush period of a TLD launch. The landrush is a time that has potential for a great degree of confusion and chaos thanks to the large number of applications that are received for websites on an eagerly anticipated TLD. The number of applications received is much greater than the sunrise period as having a valid trademark is not necessary to participate in the landrush. Customers can simply go to any registrar that offers the TLD and apply for a domain.

One of the most common problems that occur in the landrush period is that two or more applications are received for the same domain name. This is a problem that is usually rectified either by an internal agreement by the competing applicants or by an auction known as the landrush auction.
