ICANN Approves .Buzz and .Ruhr to Launch in January, 2014

.Buzz and .Ruhr both plan Land Rush periods. .Ruhr is the first “Start Date” Sunrise, which means they have provided a 30-day announcement and then plan a first-come, first-served 30-day Sunrise period. This type of Sunrise will place some pressure on trademark owners.

ICANN has published the Start-up Plans for .Buzz and .Ruhr, with Sunrise Periods starting in the second half of January.

Both plan to have Land Rush periods.

.Ruhr is the first “Start Date” Sunrise, which means they have provided a 30-day announcement and then plan a first-come, first-served 30-day Sunrise period. This TLD will place some pressure on trademark owners who might have competing trademark owners vying for the same name.

EnCirca now lists 47 Sunrise Periods on its website.

No more Start-up announcements are expected until January 6, 2014.

EnCirca signs the .UNO Registry-Registrar Agreement

Dot Latin LLC announced today that EnCirca has signed the Registry-Registrar Agreement for the .UNO domain extension specifically designed to serve the Hispanic and Latino communities, worldwide. .UNO is the first global web extension dedicated to Spanish-speaking businesses, consumers and individuals online.

Kansas City, MO (PRWEB) December 11, 2013. Dot Latin LLC announced today that EnCirca has signed the Registry-Registrar Agreement for the .UNO domain extension specifically designed to serve the Hispanic and Latino communities, worldwide. .UNO is the first global web extension dedicated to Spanish-speaking businesses, consumers and individuals online.

.UNO is the number one choice for Hispanics and Latinos. It’s short, memorizable, easily recognizable, and offers cultural significance and relevance for this online community. .UNO stands out against all other Latin web names because it’s broader in scope and meaning, more dynamic, and simply hotter than any other web identity available today.

“.UNO is poised to become the online destination for the Hispanic market,” says Tom Barrett, President of EnCirca. “.UNO’s worldwide reach and dedication to Spanish-speaking businesses and consumers makes it a must-have address for trademark owners.”

.UNO is one of the first new top level domains, out of over 1,500 applications for new domain extensions, to enter the global marketplace. .UNO will lead the tidal wave of new Internet addressing options that, beginning in 2014, will forever change the way we search and find destinations online. Culturally, community, and linguistically specific, .UNO will provide a unique opportunity for Hispanic and Latino web users to communicate and transact business together, in one space, online.

.UNO offers differentiation to Spanish-speaking businesses and entrepreneurs. It provides a voice and a platform within a community environment which transcends geography and citizenship, and tells the world that this is the place to be.

“.UNO provides an opportunity for businesses, consumers and individuals to stand out in the Hispanic market and create a meaningful connection with 490 million Spanish-speaking people worldwide.” said Dot Latin LLC CEO, Shaul Jolles. “Hispanics will know that every site that ends with .UNO was made with them in mind; .UNO is a culturally relevant domain, easy to remember, and simple to connect.”
