Updates and releases

On November 16, .forum is entering the Sunrise phase

From November 16, 2020 to December 16, 2020 at 8:00 AM Pacific (16:00 UTC), .forum will be open for registration in the Sunrise phase. 

Pre-register your .forum domain now!

The registration fee in this phase will be $452.13* for the first year. 

However, pleae note that this priority registration period is uniquely available to trademark owners registered with the Trademark Clearinghouse (TMCH). Furthermore, domain names are allocated under the first come first served basis.

Pre-registrations are also now open for Sunrise and GoLive (General Availability) phases. You can submit a registration request for your .forum domain name here: https://www.gandi.net/en/domain/tld/forum.

Another advantage of registering your domains in the Sunrise phase for this domain release is that doing so will actually cost less than when you register in the General Availability phase.

SME brand owners can apply for TMCH registration to benefit from Sunrise.

If you are a corporate customer, feel free to please contact your key account manager or contact corporatecontact@gandi.net.

Why register a .forum domain name?

“Forum” means something to businesses. It represents connection, communication, and inclusion. “Forums” have played an important role in communication of all kinds, in all industries, whether physical forums or online forums. And due to the global health crisis this year, online forums have become all the more important in our lives.

Minds + Machines, the registry for .forum, hasn’t established any particular eligibility restrictions, so anyone can register a .forum domain. For all the reasons listed above as well as to protect your brand, register this domain for your company’s dedicated online events before someone else does!

Don’t forget that the rate of successful registrations varies by release phase (Sunrise, Landrush, or GoLive).
