Phase 2 of the COM.DE launch, the Landrush Period, will begin at 5:00 pm CEST July 25, 2011 and continue through 5:00 pm CEST August 26, 2011. The Landrush is open to any company or individual wishing to register a COM.DE domain name where that domain name was not previously registered or applied for during the Sunrise Process, or excluded by the Registry. If two or more Applicants submit an Application during this phase for an identical domain name, the allocation of the domain name will be determined by auction in which case, only the Applicants who have submitted a Landrush request will be allowed to participate.
The COM.DE extension has no German local presence requirements. Additionally, the registry will not withhold any premium names, or one-character or two-character domains from being registered.
During the Landrush period, it will be $570 to register a COM.DE.
