About .WORK Domain Names

The .work domain name will have the unique characteristic of connecting anyone involved in the work force, whether it's an employee seeking a job, a recruiter looking for top talent, or an employer searching for the perfect candidate. Everyone needs some kind of work to get by, and the .work extension creates a hub for all employment and job related content.

Pre-Registration Information

The .work 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 register for Sunrise and pre-register for 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. Application fees will not be refunded.

Trademark Holders Registration - Sunrise

From November 5, 2014 at 16:00 UTC to January 5, 2015 at 16:00 UTC, trademark holders can submit an application to register a .work 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 .work registration is not supported during Sunrise.

If you aren't able to secure the domain name, we'll refund the registration fee. Application fees will not be refunded.

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.

Pre-Registration - General Availability

Beginning February 10, 2015 at 16:00 UTC, customers can register .work domain names on a first-come, first-served basis.

Bulk .work 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.
