Global registry services provider Afilias today announced the sunrise
launch dates for three new generic top-level domains (gTLD): .PINK, .RED
With the .PINK, .RED and .BLUE domains, Afilias is the first registry to
offer truly colorful ways to express yourself on the Internet. No longer
are site owners restrained to drab domain addresses. Now, your Web
address can express your individual enthusiasms!
"Afilias has a long history of launching innovative new gTLDs," said
Roland LaPlante, Senior Vice President and CMO, Afilias. "From the
successful launch of the .INFO domain - the first and most popular new
gTLD ever - to the new 'color' domains we're releasing, Afilias has
brought more consumer choice and variety than any other domain provider."
Afilias - the first to bring color to the Internet!
.PINK addresses embrace a wide range of uses, from the lighthearted fun
of baby furnishings and toys to the simmering sensuality of lingerie
products to the compassion and courage of cancer caregivers and
patients. Young women - and men - of all ages love the optimism of .PINK
and can now have a business or personal name that expresses their
"pink-itude." Finally, you can show the world that you "Think .PINK!"
On the other hand, .RED brings the heat to everything you're passionate
about! Like red lipstick, a red dress or a little red sports car, the
color red brings intensity to whatever it touches. And the .RED domain
does the same for websites. Share your interests, causes and points of
view on a .RED site. Want to make a bold fashion statement? Use .RED. In
love? Show it with .RED. Fighting evil? Do it in .RED. When you need to
heat up your Web presence, no other domain will do: Make it .RED hot!
Blue is the world's most popular color and the .BLUE domain lets you
show that you're "True .BLUE." From the calm of the ocean to the top of
the sky, blue is an attention grabber that elicits positive, peaceful
emotions such as harmony, strength and loyalty. The .BLUE domain also
conveys safety, reliability and trustworthiness; think about the "boys
in blue" or the "blue angels." And .BLUE is ideal for organizations and
campaigns focusing on water-related issues like conservation,
availability and safety.
Get your new gTLD
Today begins the 30-day minimum notice period of the Start
Date sunrise for these three new TLDs being launched by Afilias.
During sunrise, domains will be awarded in a "first come, first served"
manner; however, eligibility during this period is limited strictly to
trademark holders whose marks are registered in the Trademark
Clearinghouse. Once the general availability period opens, everyone
will be eligible to register addresses with these gTLDs.
General availability will follow the close of sunrise.
