.berlin domain registration

The new .berlin generic domain is for the community, companies, institutions and inhabitants of Berlin, the capital of Germany, in order to create a recognisable and identifiable platform for the city state.

The new .berlin extension has also been introduced to give a strong identity to the German city.
Internet users will thus be able to recognise services coming from the city of Berlin.

.berlin Sunrise Rules

The Sunrise of .berlin 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 .berlindomain, 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.

Applications received during the Sunrise period of the .berlin domains will be examined on a first come, first served basis.
