All domain extensions follow the same release sequence. The ﬁrst registration period is always reserved for Trademark Owners. During the second phase – Priority Preregistration – anyone may increase their chances of getting a non-trademarked domain for a fee. Pre-registration comes next and allows you to get a jump on those who will try to register names during General Availability, which is open to the public. During this ﬁnal phase, names are awarded on a ﬁrst come, ﬁrst served basis.
