Register .Asia Domain Names: Landrush Open

.Asia Domain Names

DotAsia Organisation has officially launchedLandrush for the .Asia top level internet domain name and now anyone can register .Asia domain names worldwide. The Landrush phase will close on March 12, 2008, and it is a good time to buy your favorite .asia domain name or win a domain name auction for it.

Buy .Asia Domain Names

The .ASIA gTLD will allow companies, organisations, events and individuals within the Asia community to establish their online identity in a regional context. After the landrush phase was opened on 20 February, a total of 266,663 applications were received by the registry within the first 24 hours!

This Landrush was preceded by the Sunrise process – Sunrise 1 provides priority for governments in the community to reserve and register domains; Sunrise 2 allows Registered Mark owners to obtain domains corresponding to the marks they own; and Sunrise 3 allows registered companies, organisations and other entities in the DotAsia Community to obtain domains corresponding to their entity names. Sunrise 1 (SR1) is preceded by a Pre-Sunrise period when governments from the region are invited to submit to the .ASIA Registry a list of Reserved Names.

The DotAsia Organisation is the sponsoring organisation and the registry operator of the .ASIA top-level domain. I checked that World’s Largest Registrar – GoDaddy.com

is also selling .asia domain names. We buy all our domains from them.

Remember .Asia Landrush opened Feb 20 and will close on March 12, 2008. After Landrush concludes on March 12, Go Live (i.e. start of normal First-Come-First-Served registration process) is scheduled from March 26, 2008. Its your chance to invest in the most prestigious and potentially profitable cyber real estate in Asia.

I’m confused about something. Let’s say that I registered a awesome domain name, for example gr.asia. Can some company named GR (and in Asia) take that domain name from me with the help of legal stuff?

Most companies were given an opportunity to grab the .asia domain names in the sunrise period. However, its always a good idea not to register a domain name which would possibly be owned by a well known organization, fearing trademark infringement. They might just do the legal stuff and take your site away. Some people do it purposefully to sell at high prices to the company, and it is called cybersquatting.
