|Secure your Brand for ten years in one go|
Amsterdam, 4 February 2009 – Following the successful .CO.NL Grandfather opening on November the 18th, the .CO.NL Operator is proud to announce its finalized Sunrise policy where any registered trademark actively using its .CO.NL domain name will get an automatic renewal for ten years.
The interest for .CO.NL has been on the rise during the first months of registration and trademark holders have shown great enthusiasm in this new international extension that offers them more visibility and flexibility. In response to brand holders’ concerns and questions, the .CO.NL operator has decided to innovate with an unprecedented Sunrise policy that will allow them to fully benefit from their domain name’s usage.
Sander Scholten, .CO.NL General Manager, explains “Research has shown that .CO.NL domains attract a lot of traffic from foreign countries such as, among others, the UK, India and Japan. The Sunrise period is a great opportunity for trademarks to capture this traffic while avoiding misuses of their brand. For additional protection, we are announcing today the details of our Sunrise Policy under which any trademark registered under .CO.NL and bearing a full-fledged website would get 10 years registration for free”.
Under the Policy, .CO.NL Domain Names registered under the Sunrise Period will be renewed for free and for ten years, providing the CO.NL Domain Names are active and allow access to a legitimate web site. .CO.NL names registered in the Sunrise Period will be automatically renewed by the Operator at the end of each year.
Scholten adds “This Policy was developed to allow brand owners to benefit from the additional traffic of a .CO.NL domain name with no extra step and at no extra cost. For trademark holders willing to protect their trademark and electing not to use their website actively, a regular registration fee will apply”.
