Reserved phase: .BRUSSELS and .VLAANDEREN for €1.50

Nov 14, 2014  - written by  in Domain names

.BRUSSELS and .VLAANDEREN are entering into the phase reserved for Belgians.

 

This period runs from November 13th to December 15th, 2014.

 

Any Belgian national that has a Belgian electronic ID card may make a registration request, whether or not he or she resides in Brussels.

 

However, only domain names containing the first and last name of the applicant will be accepted:

For example, if your name is René Magritte, you would be able to register one of the following combinations:

     magritte.brussels: last name
     magritterene.brussels: last name + first name
     renemagritte.brussels: first name + last name
     magritter.brussels: last name + first initial
     rmagritte.brussels: first initial + last name

 

Some accented characters are authorized, so renémagritte.brussels would also be a valid request for example.

You must first go to the Registry’s website at nic.brussels and use the e-ID-Wizard.

Once your eID has been validated, a reservation code will be sent to you by the Registry. Please save this code, since you must send it to Gandi’s customer support in order to complete your registration.

This code is only valid for 7 days, so you will want to be sure to act quickly. If you miss the deadline, you will need to start the process over from the beginning, and hope that someone with the same name does not get it before you, since it is still sold on the first-come, first-served basis.

 

If you would like to participate in third phase, you will need to chose the “Landrush” registration phase type between November 13th and December 15th 2014. Your order will then change its state to “error”, while waiting for the reception of your e-ID, which will be validated by our support team.

If you do not provide this before the end of the phase, the operation will be automatically cancelled on December 16th!

The cost of registration during this period is €1.50 excl. VAT for one year, under A rates.
