TM Sunrise has launched for another New Donuts gTLDs (.healthcare). Five more New gTLDs will enter TM Sunrise between August 26 and September 9, 2014, respectively. The TM Sunrise period is specifically for trademark holders to register domains that are the exact match (e.g., trademarkname.TLD) to the existing corresponding trademark(s). If you want to protect your brand(s) within specific markets, registering additional domains (specifically new gTLDs), is the best way to optimize your naming strategy.
- Trademark Sunrise for .healthcare :: Now open and will remain open through October 11, 2014
- Trademark Sunrise for .pizza :: Scheduled to open August 26, 2014 and remain open through October 25, 2014
- Trademark Sunrise for .restaurant, .gifts, and .sarl :: Scheduled to open September 2, 2014 and remain open through November 1, 2014
- Trademark Sunrise for .immo :: Scheduled to open September 9, 2014 and remain open through November 1, 2014
It’s important to note that only trademark holders who have received a valid signed mark data (SMD) file issued by the Trademark Clearinghouse (TMCH) may apply for an exact match domain name during the Sunrise period for any new gTLD(s).
