With more and more domain name registrars offering some sort of pre-registration or pre-reservation service for new top level domain names, ICANN has published a word of caution.

Cyrus Namazi, Vice President of DNS Industry Engagement for ICANN, published a blog post today titled “Pre-Reserve a Domain Name, or Not? ICANN Answers the Question.”

Namazi warns against services that “guarantee” they’ll get the domain name for you:

As responsible Registrars are advising, successful pre-registration of a domain cannot be guaranteed. ICANN seconds that advice, cautioning that registrants should be wary of anyone who claims to be able to guarantee a domain registration on a new gTLD. There are several situations that can impact the availability of a domain name and some domain names may never be available for purchase.

Pre-registration does not guarantee that your expressed interests will result in ownership as there are instances that can impact availability of Second-Level Domains include:
  • Multiple Registrars per generic Top-Level Domain
  • Trademarked Names
  • Auction of Premium Names
  • Name Collision
  • Some gTLDs may not be delegated

Using our watchlist will allow you to place your domain orders as soon as they become available.  Give us a call you have any questions about the new TLD program, or any of the available extensions.
