The .madrid launch is underway! Obviously, .madrid domains are for Madrid, the capital of Spain.
Order of priority for .madrid
The launch of .madrid will take place in several simultaneous release phases between July 16 and October 3, 2019.

- Sunrise: for those with a trademark registered with TMCH.
- Local brands: for those who own a Spanish brand or a geographical indication registered before July 5, 2019
- Local Entities: for organizations headquartered or established in the Madrid region
- Landrush: open to anyone otherwise eligible to register a .madrid domain name
Gandi will soon be accredited for .madrid
Gandi’s accreditation for .madrid is in progress. However, it’s still possible to register a .madrid domain during the priority registration period. Each order will be saved and then sent to the registry prior to October 3, 2019, the final date for priority registrations. Since the .madrid registry is not using the “first-come, first-served” principle, there’s no penalty for submitting registrations later.
N.B.: The “Local Brand” and “Local Entity” categories are not available from our website. If you would like to register in these categories, please contact our Customer care team.
