The Sunrise-Period of Select-Domains will start on April 6. Trademark owners are able to register their trademarks as Select-Domains during the Sunrise Period. The trademarks must also be registered at the
Trademark Clearinghouse .
The Select-Domain is the domain of first choice for all websites about selection and selecting.
The application fee for the Sunrise Period is 50 US-Dollars per application. The domain fee for standard domains is 60 US-Dollars each.
General availability starts on May 6th. The domain fee at the general availability for standard domains is 60 US-Dollar/year.
You can pre-register your name here at the Select-Domain. Pre-registration is free, but mandatory. If we secure the name you want, you will have to pay the domain fee.
The relationship between a better ranking in search engines and new top-level domains has already been proven in a study of Searchmetrics for .berlin domains. Websites with .berlin domains often rank better with regional searches in Google than sites with .de domains and .com domains.
"In 42% of searches, .berlin domains rank better locally."
Another study by Total Websites in Houston shows that the results of the Searchmetrics study are in principle applicable to all new TLDs, including e.g. new Select-Domains. Total Websites notes that Google sees the domain extensions of new TLDs as an important criterion for the evaluation of a domain and, therefore, concludes that:
"It's clear that the new top-level domains improve the ranking in search engines."
