About .POKER Domain Names

Raise the stakes with the popular .poker domain name. Online poker is a rapidly growing phenomenon with a passionate fanbase. The .poker extension can be used by gamers and gaming Websites, or by tipsters or bloggers who have also have a vested interest in the game.

Pre-Registration Information

The .poker launch is divided into two pre-registration phases: Priority Pre-Registration (Landrush) and 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 pre-register for the Landrush and General Availability phases, 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.

Bulk .poker registration is supported during General Availability.

Priority Pre-Registration - Landrush

From March 10, 2015 at 16:00 UTC to April 9, 2015 at 16:00 UTC, customers can purchase .poker domain names at a premium price. A registration fee is collected when the registration request is submitted.

Multiple applications with different registrars are handled through an auction process. The awarded registrar will hold an auction and award the domain to the highest bidder. If you aren't able to secure the domain name, we'll refund the registration fee.

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 only.
