Sundown approaches for some gTLDs

The sunrise periods are set to close this month for the gTLDs that follow. Once a sunrise period closes for a new gTLD, the gTLD registry will enter into landrush and early access phases before proceeding to General Availability. As a new gTLD proceeds through these phases, the ability for those of the general public to obtain desired gTLDs increases.
