Spam?
We were informed that some subscribers receive the new gTLD Newsletter with a "spam" in the object field. The tool that we use (MailChimp) does not allow to spam and when this happens, users of this tool are just blocked from using it. Also, all subscribers to the Newsletter have to confirm their subscription so...we just don't and can't do SPAM and by the way: why would we? I dig to find out why and I found this link as a possible answer. But again, I never received any complaint so we will change the subject in the object field of emails sent and use the domain name newsletter.domains to send emails.

Most recent Trademark Clearinghouse Sunrise Period announcements

The .INSURANCE Sunrise Period starts

The .INSURANCE Sunrise Period is beginning today and I see no equivalent: I mean by this that I see no competitor around (unless there is one in another language). There is a French TLD, the ".mutuelle" which is also a kind of insurance but not as generic and with a different meaning.

WHAT:
".INSURANCE is a trusted, verified, more secure and easily identifiable location on the Internet for the global insurance community and the customers it serves."

WHEN:
  • SUNRISE PERIOD START: Monday, 9 May, 2016 - 12:00;
  • SUNRISE PERIOD END: Wednesday, 8 June, 2016 - 12:00.
