Updates and releases

An .inc-redible domain is coming soon!

If you got a business, you’ve got to incorporate it. And when you do, that gives you full rights to add “Inc.” to the end of your company’s name. So why not add “.inc” to the end of your domain name too?

And to help you make the best of your business online, there are many options (with a value of  $3000) when you buy a .inc domain.

One unique aspect about .inc is its premium positioning. All domain names will be sold only at the premium price ($2,065.23 at launch) in order to reduce the risk of cybersquatting and to assure the availability of your inc.’s .inc.

>> The .inc domain will launch in phases**:

The Sunrise phase (for protected trademarks) — From March 27 to April 30, 2019
The Landrush phase (for priority registrations) – From April 30 to May 7, 2019
The General Availability phase – May 7, 2019

Protected Trademark (Sunrise) :
The Sunrise phase, during which those with trademarks registered with Trademark Clearinghouse (TMCH)*** can register their domains starting March 27, 2019, for $3,071.43* for the first year. This phase will end April 30, 2019.

Priority registration (Landrush) :
Priority registration or Landrush phases let you register a domain name ahead of the rush when .inc enters General Availability on the GoLive date of May 7. On the first day of this phase, the price is the highest and then the closer to the GoLive date, the lower the price. On the first day, you can register your .inc domain for $52,375.20* while on the last day, register it for $7,096.23* for the first year.

The most desirable .inc domains will probably be registered during this phase. You might want to re-read our article on the best strategies for optimizing your chances of getting a domain name.

GoLive and General Availability:
The GoLive date for .inc will be May 7, 2019. Starting on that date, if you selected the General Availability phase in pre-registration, then we’ll send your registration request to the registry and provided the domain wasn’t already taken in Sunrise or Landrush****, you’ll get it! After May 7, 2019, you can get a .inc domain for $2,065.23* per year
