.academy domain registration

The new .academy extension has been proposed to identify online, and give greater recognition to, academies.

The new .academy domain does not limit its scope of application and can therefore be used by all academies and institutions, regardless of the subject matter.

Registering a .academy domain also ensures greater trust and security for users that will visit the academy site.

.academy Sunrise Rules

The Sunrise of .academy 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 .academydomain, 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 .academy domain name will be settled by an auction between the contenders, trademark holders.
