.desi domain registration

The new .desi gTLD has been proposed to create an online space to identify all people, companies and cultures that belong to the DESI countries of South Asia, which include India, Nepal, Pakistan, Bangladesh e Sri Lanka, as well as the communities of displaced people in many other countries.

The new .desi extension will contribute to facilitating the exchange and diffusion of information, and will also help reach those segments of the population that do not currently use the Internet or have a presence on the Net.

.desi Sunrise Rules

The Sunrise of .desi domain is a limited period of time during which holders of trademarks may preregister names that are the same or similar to their trademark in a privileged way and at an additional cost before it is sold to the public.

To participate in the Sunrise phase of the .desidomain, the trademark must be validated by a third party designated by ICANN: the Trademark Clearinghouse (TMCH).
Dominiando is an official TMCH agent and can, therefore, carry out brand validation procedures of the trademark on your behalf.

This validation is mandatory to participate in the Sunrise of all new domains and the same validation can be reused for registration during the Sunrise periods of all extensions that allow it.

More than one request for the same .desi domain name will be settled by an auction between the contenders, trademark holders.
