About .INK Domain Names

.INK is a domain like few others. Not only is it short – which matters when customers are scouring their brains for your Web address – it’s evocative. Which makes it perfect for artists, tattoo shops, ink retailers and stationery shops, as well as anyone involved in design or cultural blogs.

Registration Information

The .INK launch is divided into three phases: Trademark Holder (Sunrise), Priority Pre-Registration (Landrush) and General Availability. Each phase has specific application requirements:

Trademark Holders Registration - Sunrise

From March 31, 2014, at 18:00 UTC to June 2, 2014, at 18:00 UTC, trademark holders can submit an application to register a .INK domain containing their owned mark before it's available to the public. When you submit the registration request, you pay registration and application fees. Application fees are non-refundable.

Trademark validation goes through the Trademark Clearinghouse (TMCH), which is an ICANN global repository for trademark data. Visit the TMCH website for information on registering a trademark.

Bulk .INK registration is not supported during this phase.

Priority Pre-Registration - Landrush

From June 5, 2014, at 18:00 UTC to June 19, 2014, at 18:00 UTC, customers can purchase .INK domain names at a premium price. When you submit the registration request, you pay registration and application fees.

Multiple Priority Pre-Registration applications with different registrars are resolved via auction. If you don't get the domain you want, we'll refund your registration fee. However, application fees are non-refundable.

Bulk .INK registration is not supported during this phase.

General Availability

Beginning June 23, 2014, at 18:00 UTC, customers can register .INK domain names on a first-come, first-served basis.

Bulk .INK registration is supported during General Availability.

Multiple applications with different registrars are resolved on a first-come, first-served basis during General Availability. If you aren’t able to secure the domain name, we’ll refund the registration fee.
