Afilias New gTLD Pre-Registration is Here

After years of discussion and preparation, Afilias is excited to start the process of bringing our two dozen-plus New generic Top-Level Domains to the public. As a first step, Afilias has created a special pre-registration site. Here, you can tell us which New gTLDs you’re interested in for yourself or your business.

For example you might be drawn to the “.LGBT” gTLD for promoting your support for LGBT issues. Or you might want to create a specialized dating service using a .MEET domain. Let us know which TLDs you have an interest in.

Afilias has applied for a wide range of TLDs, including .BET, .LOTTO, .TEAM, .GREEN, several colors like .PINK and .BLUE, .ORGANIC and many others; there’s sure to be one that could be a more memorable and appropriate home for you than your legacy .COM!

By telling us what domains interest you, we can make sure you’re included in New gTLD communications regarding the gTLDs you indicate. You’ll be the first to know about the progress of your gTLD including when and where you can begin to claim your specific name. Pre-registration is FREE and it takes only a few seconds.

Keep in mind that you do NOT need to tell us which specific name you’d like to register in a given TLD, so pre-registration isn’t a guarantee that you will get your choice when the TLD becomes available. However, you will be closer to knowing what’s going on as a pre-registrant. And that can only help you when it’s time to register.

So visit our pre-registration site at www.Afilias.info/pre-register. You can pre-register in as many TLDs as you want—all at no cost.
