The .LUXE new gTLD is here

We are already familiar with the .LUXURY new gTLD and its 880 domain name registrations. Well, his French friend has just arrived: the .LUXE new gTLD. Two languages are now covered: French and English.

In a statement, MMX, the multiple registry in charge of launching this Top-Level Domain wrote: "The ICANN-approved .luxe extension is set to shortly enter its pre-launch phases ahead of going on sale to the public from 30 October 2018."

Silimar TLDs:
Just for the note, this domain name extension is listed in my highly consulted list of similar domain name extensions.

The innovation:
"LUXE" seem to stand for "Lets U Xchange Easily" and the registry website says that the TLD is "The first open, Top-Level Domain created to combine Ethereum blockchain innovation and security with ease-of-use for today’s world – the .luxe standard that “lets you exchange easily” smart contracts, crypto and other blockchained products."

Extracted from the ICANN web sites, I found other important dates:
  • Sunrise Period: 09 August 2018 to 08 October 2018;
  • Trademark Claims Period: 30 October 2018 to 28 January 2019;
  • Limited Registration Period (LRP): 9 Oct 2018 to 25 Oct 2018.
This Sunrise Period should soon be officially announced on the Trademark Clearinghouse calendar.
