About .CRICKET Domain Names

The .cricket domain name is ideal for any level of player or enthusiast of the game of cricket. Coaches, players, teams, fans and sponsors can all unite in the shared online space created by the .cricket extension.

Registration Information

The .cricket launch is divided into two registration phases: Trademark Holder (Sunrise) and Pre-Registration (General Availability.) Each phase has specific application requirements:

Pre-Registration

Pre-registration gives you the best possible chance of securing a domain name before it's available to the general public, but it doesn't guarantee you will get it. You can only pre-register for General Availability, and we'll submit your registration application when the phase begins.

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.

Trademark Holders Registration - Sunrise

From December 8, 2014 at 15:00 UTC to February 6, 2015 at 15:00 UTC, trademark holders can submit an application to register a .cricket domain containing their owned mark, before it's available to the public.

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 .cricket registration is not supported during Sunrise.

If you aren't able to secure the domain name, we cannot refund the registration or application fees.

You cannot cancel your pre-registration application. If you are awarded the domain name, you have 5 days to cancel your domain name and get a refund of the registration fee.

Pre-Registration - General Availability

Beginning February 17, 2015 at 15:00 UTC, customers can register .cricket domain names on a first-come, first-served basis.

Bulk .cricket 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.

If you are awarded the domain name, you have 5 days to cancel your domain name and get a refund of the registration fee.
