Four new gTLDs, .pink, .red, .kim, and .shiksha, are now in Trademark Sunrise, and two more (.blue, and .移动, the Chinese IDN for .mobile) will enter TM Sunrise on March 14, 2014. Registrations are being handled a bit differently for this launch. During all launch phases, including TM Sunrise, domains will be registered on a first come, first served basis unless the name is blocked or reserved by the registry.
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). If you have any questions about the launch of these, or any other, new gTLDs, please contact your Safenames account manager.
