Maybe you run events in the capital – advertise them to the right people with a dot London domain name extension. Give your market stall an online lift, run a cockney rhyming slang dictionary, start an Eastenders, Chelsea FC, or Borough Market fan-page – all from Dot London.
Sunrise/Landrush for Dot London
The Dot London process is slightly more complicated than its fellow gTLDs as we will be offering the sunrise period. We’re expecting Dot London to be a popular extension and this allows us to help you get your London business registered if you are entitled to a name.
The Sunrise and Landrush periods are operating simultaneously with Dot London. There are different levels of qualification for a name, and should more than one person be entitled at the same point to a domain name, the name will go to auction.
The qualifications are:
1. Those in the Trademark Clearinghouse
2. Those having a London address AND a right to a name (e.g. it matches their business name)
3. Those having a London address for any name
If you do not qualify under these four points, please wait until the Sunrise and Landrush period is over, and claim your name during general availability.
There will be a NON-REFUNDABLE fee of £150 in order for us to process your Sunrise application. This does not include the fee for the domain name registration itself which is £30.
