Watchlist FAQs

TLD stands for Top Level Domain. It's sometimes more simply referred to as the domain's extension. The most famous example is .com. So for example, in google.com the TLD is .com. In google.net the TLD is .net.

New TLDs will go through a typical lifecycle such as this:

  1. TLD Application Approved by ICANN
  2. Sunrise Period
  3. Landrush Period
  4. General Availability

You will be able to purchase domain names directly from Watchlist as registries begin taking orders for each TLD.

When a company wants to open a new TLD, they must submit a proposal to ICANN for review. The new TLD can be launched once ICANN approves the application.

Sunrise is the first phase of a TLD launch in which owners of trademarks may register domains containing their marks. Some TLDs may hold additional Sunrise phases targeting members of specific communities or organizations.

Landrush is the phase of a TLD launch during which domain names are available for registration for non-trademark holders that wish to register generic terms like loan or car but cannot participate in the Sunrise period. Landrush comes after Sunrise but before General Availability.

Pre-registration is a phase of a TLD launch that allows for the placement of Pre-orders that are to be executed immediately upon the opening of the General Availability period. Pre-registration will be only supported for some TLDs.

General Availability is the phase of a TLD launch when domain names are publicly available for anyone to register as long as registrants adhere to the requirements established by that particular TLD’s registry.
