Not only is the 60-day sunrise period for those who have trademarked names just around the corner, but those looking to get an early jump on grabbing a dot church domain need to circle some dates on the calendar.
Here’s everything you need to know about .church:
Series Two — Episode Seven
Some dates to keep in mind:
- July 8th — 60-day ‘sunrise period’ begins
- Followed by a 7-day early access program (September 10th)
- Then, on September 17th, the public launch and general availability begins!
As DJ said in the podcast (and video interview), there’s a lot of legal stuff and how these new domains are released can be a tad bit confusing. To recap a little bit, the July 8th 60-day sunrise period is for those who have an officially trademarked name, and the special 7-day early access program is only reserved for those willing to drop down some decent cash on a domain name. Keep in mind that towards the end of the 7-day early access program, the cost isn’t nearly as prohibitive as it is the first few days, so I encourage you to investigate this angle further as September gets closer.
