.asia Landrush web-address
.asia - the dedicated top level web-address for the Asia-Pacific region.
The .asia domain name registration process varies from other new TLD's in the respect that the initial Landrush will allow anyone to attempt to register any available domains.
If the domain in question is requested by more than one party then the web address will be subject to an auction in which all interested parties will be able to bid on the domain.
If you are fortunate enough to be the only party to request a specific web address then it will be registered to you at the end of the Landrush period.
After the initial Landrush period comes ‘Go Live’ when the registry will be open to live registrations.
Landrush Process for .asia web address
Landrush is the first opportunity for the general public to register a .asia web address.
The dotAsia registry have opted to utilise an auction process for domains requested multiple times during the Landrush period. Landrush will function as follows:
- Landrush process
- If a domain name is requested by more than one party, the domain will be subject to an auction in which all interested parties will be able to bid on the domain. The domain auction will be conducted by Pool.com
- If you are fortunate enough to be the only bidder then it will be registered to you at the end of the Landrush period.
Anyone seriously looking for a .asia web address needs to be registering their web address at this stage. If there is more than one applicant for the same domain name during this stage it will be auctioned to the highest bidder at the end of this period.
I'm not in the Asia-Pacific region. Can I still register a .asia web address?
Yes you can still register a .asia web address, you will need to have one contact in the Asia Pacific region, which we will happily take care of automatically for you upon your domain registration.
