A TLD for the .family enters the Sunrise phase

Nov 11, 2015  - written by  in Domain names

As the weather is getting colder and the calendar marches interminably through the month of November, we are increasingly reminded of that socially mandatory celebration period starting at the end of this month and lasting roughly a month later, during which we are all obliged to participate in some of the following mandatory activities:

– consuming higher than the recommended daily allowance of turkey

– consuming any cranberries at all, really

– consuming sugared pumpkin pastries

– biting tongue when grandpa gets drunk and rants about politics

– compensating for strained and/or distant relationships through commercialism

and of course

– spending time with one’s family

And so in celebration of this most cherished time of year, an extension for the friends you don’t choose and are stuck with your whole life is entering the Sunrise phase: .family.

Okay just kidding. We really do love our families (Hi Mom!).

The Sunrise phase will last from November 10, 2015 through the Lowest-Amount-of-Light-per-Day Season until January 9, 2016. Domains in this extension will be available to qualified buyers at $167.59 per year during this phase. The Sunrise phase is for TMCH-registered trademark holders. Contact our corporate support team if you have a TMCH-registered trademark (or would like help registering your existing trademark at TMCH) in order to register one of these new gTLDs during Sunrise.

Then, between January 17 and January 20, 2016, .family will be in the Landrush phase, during which .family domains will be available for $178.39 per year.

Finally at 9:00 AM PST on January 20, 2016, .family will enter the GoLive phase when it will be priced at $31.15 per year at A rates.
