Early Access Program "EAP" - Starts 29 Jan 2014

The Early Access Program ("EAP") replaces the traditional landrush for all Donuts new gTLDs. Donuts applied for over 300 new gTLDs and has since launched over 45 of them.

The EAP starts on 29 January 2014 and lasts for 7 days until 4 February 2014 (16:00 UTC start and end time).


The first batch includes the following new gTLDs:


.ventures

.holdings
.clothing
.plumbing
.bike
.singles
.guru

EAP applications will be accepted on a first come, first served basis with no restrictions.


Each of the EAP days has a different price attached to it. If you register on Day 1, you pay the highest price. If you register on the 5th to 7th day you pay the lowest price.


The trick is to register your domain name at an affordable price without losing out to another party. The selection of day and consequently price is dependent on how badly you want the domain name.


The fees of an EAP registration decreases as the days progress. (The prices below include Namelynx and EAP registry once-off application fees).

Day 1 ­‐ $10 400 

Day 2 - $2 750
Day 3 - $1 080
Day 4 - $570
Day 5 - 7 - $140

In addition to the above fees, the standard registration fee will have to be paid, which starts from $15.99 per year. The registration fee is dependent on whether the domain name is classified as a premium domain name or not. Some reserved domain names may not be available for registration.


If you want to register a domain name during the EAP or want a quote send an email to support@namelynx.com with the subject line EAP.

Why register a domain in a new domain extension?

The Internet is about freedom of expression, variety, engagement and choice. Registering a domain name in a new domain name extension is all about that.

Watch the video below, which explains how the new domain name extensions will benefit those searching for a new identity on the Internet.


It may take time for the general Internet community to absorb the new domain name extensions but by that time the valuable domain names may already be registered.

What better way to express yourself than registering domain names such as lets.shop or affordable.accountants.

The domain name industry is littered with abbreviations. The most used one in 2014 will be new gTLD or generic Top Level Domain such as .ventures, .company and .guru. 

Over the next few months we will be adding hundreds of new domain name extensions to our dedicated new gTLD registration service.

Visit http://www.namelynx.com/new-gtlds and register your new domain name today or drop us an email (support@namelynx.com) if you have any questions.

.EU opens to Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway

The European Union has its own domain name extension .EU, which was launched a few years ago.

In order to register a .EU domain name you need to be a resident or company from an EU member state. This rule has now been relaxed to allow residents and companies from Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway to register .eu domain names.

If your are based on one of those countries take advantage and register your .eu domain name.

Don't worry if you are from outside the .EU as we offer a local presence service.

Register your .eu domain name at http://www.namelynx.com/deals/eu

2014 is the year of the new gTLD

We are looking forward to 2014.

During this year a number of new domain name extensions (new gTLDs) will be launched. They will provide the Internet community with a vast selection of extensions ranging from .buzz to .tattoo.

We will offer all these new gTLDs through our dedicated new gTLD registration page, which you can visit at http://www.namelynx.com/new-gtlds.

You will now have the opportunity to get the domain name you always wanted that describes your business or interest such as unlock.plumbing or mypictures.gallery.

Other exciting new domain names extensions include .london, .africa and .shop.

We wish our users and readers a happy new year. 

May you reign with your domain.
