After Sunrise, gTLDs enter a Landrush period — when individuals seeking second-level domains within a new gTLD can pay for pre-registration — before they become available to the general public. (Read more about Landrush in a previous gTLD post.) If any of these gTLDs are of interest to your brands or business, now is the time to take action.

Almost two dozen gTLDs are new to the delegation pool

Since our previous article, ICANN has delegated 23 additional gTLDs.
