.city domain registration

The new .city gTLD will identify all those cities that do not have their own specific top level domain, therefore it can represent different municipal territories.

In addition, you can use this new .city extension in conjunction with adjectives, ideas, events, activities and concepts that will only assume specific meaning if followed by the "city" string (e.g. green.city).

.city Sunrise Rules

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