.nowruz Launch Plan and Policy
This document describes Launch Policy for the .nowruz TLD (“Registry TLDs”).
All applications must be submitted through Registrars in accordance with all Registry Policies, the requirements of ICANN and Trademark Clearing House (“TMCH”) along with the Registry Operator-Registrar agreement.
Applicants acknowledge and agree that an application for registration of a specific domain name does not necessarily result in actual registration. Contractual rights and privileges only enter into force with actual registration within, or following the completion of, the related phase of the Launch Period under circumstances described in this Policy, Registration Policy and Auction Policy, where applicable.
The Registry Operator shall execute the Launch Policy in cooperation with Registrars and TMCH.
Timeframe for the Launch Period is set forth in the Launch Schedule and launch phases are described briefly below:
Sunrise: Only TMCH validated trademark holders will be able to apply within the Sunrise Period, and requested domain names will be allocated to successful applicants on a “first come, first served” basis.
General Availability: Everyone will be able to apply for available domain names and requested domain names will be allocated to successful applicants on a “first come, first served” basis.
The Registry Operator has reserved certain names from registration in the TLDs under the Reserved Name Policy. Reserved names may be made available at a later date via a mechanism to be determined by the Registry Operator. Additionally, the Registry Operator may, at its sole discretion, reserve certain domain names as “premium” and make them subject to a premium registration fee.
The Registry Operator may amend or update this Policy from time to time at its sole discretion and based on the requirements of ICANN.
