The.ruhr extension has been proposed to create an online platform for the community and citizens, as well as the organisations, companies and institutions of the Ruhr region, area in North Rhine-Westphalia, the largest urban area in Germany and third-largest in the European Union.

The new .ruhr generic domain has also been designed to give a strong identity to the region.

This way, Internet users will be able to recognise services from the Ruhr region.

.ruhr Sunrise Rules

The Sunrise of .ruhr 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 .ruhrdomain, 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.

Applications received during the Sunrise period of the .ruhr domains will be examined on a first come, first served basis.
