Com Laude is an ICANN accredited registrar,that works with brands and law firms, they sent out a newsletter with updated timelines related to collision list availability.
Following a 90-day public consultation period, ICANN is now implementing a solution to allow new gTLD registries to release names from their Second-level Domain (SLD) Block Lists for registration while complying with all Rights Protection Mechanism requirements.
You may now wish to secure certain domains under the Name Collision List. In order to assist you in doing so, we have received the following details from new gTLD registries so far on the release of such domains and will keep you updated as we receive more.
punkt.wien GmbH has announced it is to release domains under the Collision List on 18 November on a first-come, first-served basis.
PointQuébec Inc has also announced it is to release domains under the Collision List on 18 November on a first-come, first-served basis.
Starting Dot – .ARCHI and .BIO
We remind you that registry operator Starting Dot has announced that the ‘serverHold’ status for those registered domains which are on the Name Collision List will be removed and all NXD interruptions will be removed, so that all registered domains with valid name server settings will be active in the DNS as follows:
.ARCHI: 17 November 2014 (15:00 UTC)
.BIO: 19 November 2014 (15:00 UTC)
CentralNic has also advised that those domains which were not available for registration during Landrush and General Availability, due to their being on the Name Collision Block List, will be available for registration on a first-come, first-served basis at 14:00 UTC on Wednesday, 26 November 2014 for the following TLDs:
Registry operator Dot GLOBAL AS has announced it will release its Name Collision Names for registration as follows:
- .GLOBAL will maintain an “Exclusive Registration Period” for labels that are registered with a valid SMD file in the TMCH database. Detailed information will be available in due course.
- Name collision labels which are not in the TMCH will be released on 2 December 2014.
Rightside Registry intends to release all collision domains for sale on 14 January 2015 at 17:00 UTC on a first-come, first-served basis.
Those TLDs affected are as follows:
Meanwhile, successful Sunrise applications made on Rightside TLDs delegated before 18 August will resolve after 14 January 2015. Successful Sunrise applications made on TLDs delegated after 18 August (namely, .FORSALE, .BAND and .RIP) will resolve in the quiet period between the Sunrise and Early Access Phases.
We will forward further information from Donuts on the release of its Name Collision List names in due course, but they are expected to start from January at the earliest.
In the meantime, we remind you that for Donuts TLDs delegated after 18 August 2014 they are wildcarding the entire zone for 90 days following delegation. After this wildcard period, the end of which will run concurrently with the normal 60 day Sunrise, the TLDs will be open for registration with the Early Access Period (General Availability Day 1).
