.CM Sunrise period opens at EuroDNS on June 15th! PDF Print E-mail

Luxembourg, 11th June 2009EuroDNS is glad to announce the opening of the .CM Sunrise
phase on June 15th 2009 at 9:00 UTC until July 14th 2009 at 23:59:59 UTC.

.CM is the country code top-level domain (ccTLD) for the Republic of Cameroon. The Sunrise period allows all trademark owners to register at the earliest stage and thus protect their brand name in the .CM extension.

Xavier Buck, CEO of EuroDNS explains “We are proud to be part of the launch of the .CM extension. Central Africa does not provide many domain name extensions and this is a great opportunity to expand one’s portfolio. Another advantage is that people often forget to type the ‘o’ when looking for a .com domain name, and having your domain name in .CM could secure a lot of traffic and avoid any misleading use of your name”. The launch of .CM is also a key initiative in the battle against poverty in Africa. Indeed, for each domain sold, a certain percentage will go the foundation “Flowers in the Desert”. The .CM will also contribute to the development of Internet and e-commerce on the African market and push its expansion.

During the Sunrise phase, the minimum registration period is 2 years and applicants must hold a valid and issued trademark at the time of application. If there is more than one valid sunrise application for the same domain name, the name will be awarded to the registrant with the oldest registered trademark. Each domain application costs 360 EUR with a non-refundable fee of 60 EUR, including a two year term.


The registry will then open the Landrush period from July 15th, 2009, 0:00:01 UTC until July 31st, 2009, 0:00:01 UTC, during which all applications will be subjected to a premium fee and an auction system, with a minimum registration time of 2 years. Indeed, in case there is more than one application per domain, the domain will go into an auction system that will be held shortly after the end of the Landrush period.

The price for each domain name application will be 260 EUR, including a two years term.
The Go Live will begin on August 1st, 2009 at 0:00:01 UTC. At this point .CM domains can be
registered on a first come, first served basis. The minimum registration term is 1 year and the price will be announced soon. The price for the each Go Live registration is 80 EUR.
To have more information and register your .CM now, just go to: www.eurodns.com, and stay tuned!

* The A6.com referring member was Y3.com who received a 5% commission, or US $1,700 for their referral

As a result of the BuyDomains Referral Program, the domain seller, buyer and referring member all benefited.

“We would like to thank BuyDomains.com's Referral Program which has created several opportunities to begin our mutual relationship into working together towards success.

Two great opportunities for you.

BUY OUR NAMES
First, if you have been looking to expand your web presence with fresh brandable domains, but have been reluctant to do so, read this message:

Seize The Domain is sensitive to the impact this recession is having on your business. For a limited time, we are offering a special stimulus package designed for your needs.
Absolutely nobody in the industry offers a better deal. We call it the "ZERO EXCUSE EVENT".

and a 1 YEAR SATISFACTION GUARANTEE.**

There is no better time to buy than now. Most .com domains will be in the $ xxx - xxxx range.

*0% financing available on most but not all domain purchases. Check the domain online to see if it qualifies. **If you are not satisfied with your domain purchase, trade it in within 12 months of purchase for full credit, to be applied towards the purchase of another domain from our inventory.

SELL YOUR DOMAINS/PRODUCTS
Second, if you find that you have some domains, or perhaps a product or service that is going unused, turn it into cash by considering:

Seize The Domain is currently seeking domains, hosting, content, traffic and more to be auctioned. Please provide us details of your product or service with the suggested retail value along with your absolute lowest reserve price. Because of the amount of domain name submissions we anticipate receiving, we ask that you send us your best 20 domains and your reserve price.

Thank you Connor and LAJ for bringing SeizeTheDomain onboard to manage the domain auction for Cybernet Expo. It really is going to be a great extension of the Marketplace.

A heavily advertised auction of geo-targeted real estate domains will be held Thursday in San Francisco - but will buyers show up? (There will be no online bidding). Meanwhile, the ICA warns ICANN could become "an unaccountable Internet regulator." We thought they already were but it could get even worse.
