ICANN accredited registar Secura announces today, that the company is accepting applications for the sunrise and real time period of eu-domains (https://www.domainregistry.de/eu.html).
You should send now to http://www.domainregistry.de/eu.html your applications to secure your rights at the new eu-domains. The eu-domains will be the most important event since the introduction of com-domains.
There will be a Sunrise Period (Phased registration for those holding prior rights to a name) at the eu-domains.
The EU Regulation stipulates that the registry must make a sunrise provision at eu-domains to allow those with ‘prior rights’ to a name to apply for registration of eu-domains in advance of beginning general registrations. The PPR states that the sunrise period (phased registration) of eu-domains will take place in two phases each lasting two months.
The Sunrise Period of eu-domains will have two phases: During phase one, public bodies and holders of registered Community or national trademarks will be able to register their names.
During phase two those who may register in phase 1 may register their eu-domains as well holders of other rights recognised under Community law or the national law of an EU member state. Eu-domains registered during the sunrise period must be an exact match for the prior right claimed and documentary evidence must be supplied to proof the right.
First comes-first served. Some weeks after the Sunrise Period eu-domains goes live and general registrations of eu-domains will begin and registration of eu-domains will be done on a first come first served basis for any eu-domain not taken during the sunrise period.
eu-domains for anybody:
Only persons and companies in the European Union can register eu-domains. If you have no company in the European Union, you can register at http://www.domainregistry.de/eu.html nevetheless eu-domains. An European company will register your eu-domain name for you. The trustee confirms to each customer that the customer has the propriety and intellectual rights of the eu-domains.
