Sunrise Period for .ECO & more.

Today is day one of the .ECO Sunrise Period. It means that owners of a Trademark - who have submitted an application to the Trademark Clearinghouse to protect their Trademark online - are allowed to register their domain name ending in ".eco" (instead of ".com").

There were four applicants for a .ECO new gTLD:
  1. Big Room Inc
  2. Planet Dot Eco, LLC
  3. Little Birch, LLC
  4. Top Level Domain Holdings Limited
Fortunately for .ECO, the application for the .ECOM new gTLD was withdrawn. The SUNRISE PERIOD:
  • STARTS: Wednesday, 1 February, 2017 - 16:00;
  • ENDS: Sunday, 2 April, 2017 - 16:00.
For full details about the Sunrise Period, check the Trademark Clearinghouse's calendar.

Good to know
The purpose of .ECO is to:
  1. Allow members of the Community to more easily identify themselves and other Community members online and to prevent misuse of .ECO domain names that could lead to confusion.
  2. Utilize the power of the Internet to foster transparency, information sharing, communication and exchange of ideas to promote environmental goals, interests and values, amongst Community members and those who are exploring that opportunity.
  3. Provide a platform for accurate and non-deceptive information and reliable resources to encourage environmental awareness and action on sustainability.
