Get your .PARS

.PARS IS AN EXTENSION OPEN TO EVERYBODY, AND THERE ARE NO SPECIAL ELIGIBILITY REQUIREMENTS TO REGISTER ONE

Please note that the .PARS Registry does not accept any registration order directly. All registration orders need to be submitted through one of our Accredited Registrar (or one of their Resellers).

Many Registrars offer the possibility of placing a pre-registration order for one or more of the phases of the launch, and submit your order to us (the Registry) when the relevant phase opens.

Consider also that while most domains have a standard price, a small number of high-value domains are considered Premium and have higher price tags attached.
Your Registrars will be able to provide you full information on the cost of the domain you wish to register.

YOU CAN READ ABOUT EACH PHASE BY CLICKING ONE OF THE LINKS BELOW:

1. TRADEMARK PRIORITY REGISTRATION PHASE (SUNRISE)

The .pars launch starts officially on November 16th, 2015 with a Priority Registration Phase reserved for holders of registered Trademarks (commonly referred to as ”Sunrise”). You can submit your order through any of the Registrars participating in the .Pars Sunrise.

In order to participate in this phase, you will need to get your Trademark pre-validated by the Trademark Clearing House (TMCH). Once validated, the TMCH will provide you with a so-called Signed Mark Data (SMD) file which contains all the necessary information required to submit your Sunrise order.

If you have previously participated in the Sunrise of a new TLDs that launched in the last couple of years, you probably already have a valid SMD file.

In case of doubt, your Registrar should be able to assist you in verifying whether your Trademarks are already registered in the Trademark Clearing House. If needed, most Registrars can also assist in getting your Trademark registered in the Trademark Clearing House for an additional fee.

The Trademark Priority Registration Phase will run for 60 days, and the last day to submit an order for this phase is January 15th, 2016 (please note that registering a Trademark in the TMCH typically takes at least a week… So don’t wait until the last minute!).

Once the Sunrise phase closes, we will review all the valid orders received. If a specific domain receives only one valid request, the domain will be registered in the name of that applicant and activated.

Domains that receive more than one valid request will be allocated through an auction among all the applicants that requested it. These auctions are scheduled to take place between January the 18th and January the 22nd 2016.

Your Registrars will notify you of the status of your order and, if needed, provide you with the relevant details to participate in the auction. Please note that the price the winner of the auction will pay is separate and does not include the Registration fee that the Registrar charges for the registration of the domain.

2. PRIORITY REGISTRATION PHASE (LANDRUSH)

Once the legitimate interests of Trademark Holders have been addressed in the Sunrise phase, all of those that want first shot at the .cloud of their dream can place their orders for the Priority Registration Phase (also known as ”Landrush”) that will open on January 25th, 2016 and run until February 5th, 2016.

To guarantee that all interested parties get a fair shot at the best domains, all orders received during this phase will be put on hold until the end of the Landrush period. At that point, domains that received only one valid request will be registered in the name of the applicant that requested them.

Domains that receive more than one valid request will be allocated through an auction among all the applicants that requested it.

Your Registrars will notify you of the status of your order and, if needed, in the period between the 8th and the 12th of February 2016 the Auction Provider (Nidoma) will provide you with the relevant details to participate in the auction. Please note that the price the winner of the auction will pay is separate and does not include the Registration fee that the Registrar charges for the registration of the domain.

You find a list of Registrars offering Landrush registrations here.

3. GENERAL AVAILABILITY

On February the 16th, 2016, the launch of .PARS will be officially over as we enter General Availability. From this point on, if the .cloud domain you want is available, you can register it with your favourite Registrar and start using right away… Quite handy for those great ideas you usually get at 3 in the morning and that just cannot wait!
