New .asia domain name set for launch
New .asia domain names are to go up for grabs this European summer, and NetNames is warning UK businesses to protect their brands from rivals and cybersquatters by registering early. With around 900,000 .jp domain names and 780,000 .cn domain names registered among the 73 countries in the Asia/Australia/Pacific region that will be entitled to register in .asia, there is expected to be some vigorous competition for many domain names. It is expected there will be four registrations periods: the first sunrise period, expected to begin in June for government bodies; second sunrise period from September to be open to trademark owners; the third sunrise is period from November for any company operating in the Asia-Pacific region and finally the .asia domain name will then go into the so-called ‘landrush’ phase, pencilled in for February 2008 and open up to anyone in the region. TechNewsReview.com.au will keep you informed of developments.
