The .HEALTH Sunrise Period

The .HEALTH new gTLD (for domain names ending in ".health", instead of ".com") now has a date for its Sunrise Period:
  • START: Monday, 8 May, 2017 - 16:00;
  • END: Friday, 7 July, 2017 - 16:00.
What does the application say about .HEALTH:
“Health” is the general condition of the body or mind with reference to soundness and vigor. As a global society, health is a measure of soundness of body, mind or being. Health can mean freedom from disease or ailment. Virtually everywhere in the world, and across many stakeholder segments, health is a major contributor to the economy and serves as a leading and influential indicator for measuring any one country or territory’s economic and societal strengths and weaknesses against others. Throughout the world, people rate health one of their highest priorities and concerns. Whether these are mental, physical, economic or social, these concerns are commonly linked to education and literacy, food and nutrition, fitness and exercise, medicines and therapies, environment and nature, technology and innovation, insurance and employment, for professional research and others.
The detailed explanation is rather long so I suggest to read the rest of it here (download the application then).

All dates for the Sunrise Period (and after) can be found at the Trademark Clearinghouse. Official website of the Registry is: To register your domain name, check for an accredited Registrar to participate in the Sunrise Period.
