.nrw domain registration

The.nrw extension has been proposed to create an online platform for the community, citizens, companies, organisations and institutions of North Rhine-Westpahlia, the most populous of the 16 federal states of Germany.

The new .nrw generic domain has also been designed to encourage a strong identity for the fourth largest state by area.

.nrw Sunrise Rules

The Sunrise of .nrw domain is a limited period of time during which holders of trademarks may preregister names that are the same or similar to their trademark in a privileged way and at an additional cost before it is sold to the public.

To participate in the Sunrise phase of the .nrwdomain, the trademark must be validated by a third party designated by ICANN: the Trademark Clearinghouse (TMCH).
Dominiando is an official TMCH agent and can, therefore, carry out brand validation procedures of the trademark on your behalf.

This validation is mandatory to participate in the Sunrise of all new domains and the same validation can be reused for registration during the Sunrise periods of all extensions that allow it.

More than one request for the same .nrw domain name will be settled by an auction between the contenders, trademark holders.
