Why you should register your .gay domains in the EAP phase

As the word says, .gay is dedicated to anything related to being gay. In addition to using it as your web address, you can also use this domain to represent your support for LGBTQ communities. With this domain name, you’ll be able to clearly express the subject of your site and better attract your target audience!

Domains are often ones like “”, that consist of common, generic terms that are likely to also enjoy better search engine rankings. Additionally, since the EAP phase comes right after the Sunrise phase, there will be more available domains then than in the Golive phase after that. As a result, you have the best chance (around 96% chance) of getting and paying less for your Premium domain at the beginning of the Landrush or EAP period, but if you wait until the GoLive date, there’s only a 15% chance of getting the domain you want.

Registering a .gay domain may seem like a drop in the ocean, but it’s actually a big step forward for society. For each new domain name registered, the registry will give 20% of the profits to GLAAD (the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation) and the non-profit CenterLink to help address the specific problems faced by the LGBTQ community!

All men, women, and non-gender binary people are created equal. Be yourself, and stay proud!
