.rugby domain registration

The new .rugby gTLD has been proposed to create a platform for the sport of rugby.

Registering a .rugby domain will serve all rugby teams as a reliable and recognizable online space, and enthusiasts and fans to share news and comments on games, plays, and players.

.rugby Sunrise Rules

The Sunrise of .rugby domain is a limited period of time during which holders of trademarks may preregister names that are the same or similar to their trademark in a privileged way and at an additional cost before it is sold to the public.

To participate in the Sunrise phase of the .rugbydomain, the trademark must be validated by a third party designated by ICANN: the Trademark Clearinghouse (TMCH).
Dominiando is an official TMCH agent and can, therefore, carry out brand validation procedures of the trademark on your behalf.

This validation is mandatory to participate in the Sunrise of all new domains and the same validation can be reused for registration during the Sunrise periods of all extensions that allow it.

More than one request for the same .rugby domain name will be settled by an auction between the contenders, trademark holders.
