What Does TLD Domain ‘Pre-Registration’ Really Mean?

Traditionally, domain pre-registration occurs as prelude to the opening of the General Availability phase of a gTLD launch sequence. It is important to note that General Availability – where pre-registration applies – will occur AFTER Trademark SunriseSupplemental Sunrise, and Landrush phases.

There are opportunities for someone to register domains before ‘pre-registration’ comes into play.

How TLD Domain Pre-Registration Typically Works

An official pre-registration is a contracted, binding agreement, where payment is provided in exchange for the promise that the registrar will attempt to register that name on your behalf – immediately upon opening of General Availability.

There could be over 1000 accredited registrars all waiting to connect the second that New gTLD registry opens for General Availability . .
