Vancouver, BC, 2 March 2017 – .eco, a new ending for the web addresses of those committed to positive change for the planet, has opened a priority registration period for trademark holders who have registered trademarks. Priority registrations for trademark holders will close on 2 April 2017 at 15:59 UTC.
Like all new domain name endings, .eco offers a “sunrise period” or special window for trademark holders registered with the Trademark Clearinghouse to reserve their marks prior to general availability.
“Before the public launch of .eco on 25 April, we’re inviting trademark holders to secure their .eco domain names through priority registration for their trademarks,” said Trevor Bowden, co-founder of .eco.
Most trademark holders work with a third-party for their domain name services. They are advised to contact their legal department or intellectual property counsel to register a .eco domain. The following domain name retailers are currently offering .eco sunrise services: https://www.home.eco/registrars/partners/
The .eco domain is available to companies, governments, non-profits and individuals committed to positive change for the planet. The new domain name ending is a trusted symbol for those working toward a sustainable future.
“We are thrilled to be part of .eco,” said Sid Das, Digital Director at WWF International, a .eco supporter. “It’s great to see this domain will be maintained by a community that is passionate about the environment.”
