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.
