It’s a kind of magic that what art does when it takes something with apparently little to no value — a plain field of hay in the south of France, a portrait of Elvis, or — and articulates its hidden value for the world to see.
It’s in that spirit that .art enters the gTLD marketplace.
Naturally .art should be available to artists, art institutions and organizations, first and foremost, and so before it’s opened up to everyone, it will first go through a Preferred Access Period, which it is in now. During this period, a token must be obtained from the .art registry’s website. The form to obtain a token is open to all, and the registry may verify your eligibility.
To register in the Preferred Access Period, once you have your token, launch your order in the Landrush phase from Gandi’s website (or use the form below). Then, you will then need to provide the token to our customer care team so that we can use it to validate your order with the registry, who will then process the registrations on a first come, first served basis.
Domains in this Preferred Access or Landrush period will be available for $199.65.* You have until May 9, 2017 to register in this phase. Otherwise, .art opens up to everyone on May 17, 2017 when it enters the GoLive phase. Prices in this phase will be $17.44 at A rates.*
What will you use your .art to do?
*Prices in USD. See .art page for local pricing.
