So I’ve had a lot of people asking me questions about .NYC and for good reason, it’s here and the good names are probably going to sell quickly. I will be doing a more detailed post about .NYC and what I think about the new extension but right now I wanted to give a few burning questions that I know most of you have:
- The Landrush has started – NYC residents and businesses can grab a .NYC between now and October 3rd at OwnIt.nyc. You must have a physical street address in NYC and yes, you can bet a lot of people will be gaming the system so while it’s intended for only people in NYC a lot of people will be trying to get these names.
- Domain without conflict will be awarded on Oct 7th – if you’re the only person that wants the name(s) you picked during landrush then you get it on October 7th. However, if you picked popular names that other people wanted you’ll have to battle it out in an auction.
- October 8th General Availability begins – starting on October 8th all NYC residents can freely register .NYC domains on a first-come first-serve basis
