Why is it important to register .sbs domains in the EAP phase?

An abbreviation for “side by side,” .sbs domain is dedicated to forward-thinking and social welfare organizations, entreprises, and community groups.

As you already know, the Sunrise phase is reserved for people who hold trademarks registered with ICANN’s Trademark Clearinghouse, which means you still have lots of opportunities to register a good name in the beginning of EAP phase.

In addition, ShortDot registry hasn’t added any registration restrictions on .sbs. Anyone can get a .sbs domain name on a firstcomefirstserve basis for the standard price of $11.75* in the GoLive phase. But that also means you will have fewer choices and need to compete with more people if you wait until the GoLive phase. That’s why we recommend you register the domain name you want in this phase.

Last but not least, .sbs possesses all the elements of a great domain: short and smart, memorable, relevant, generic, and self-reinforcing.

Devote yourself to society by purchasing .sbs domains

Buying a .sbs domain name also means you’ll be doing good! The registry will donate a portion of proceeds from every .sbs domain name registration to a non-profit organization.
