The Sunrise took place and ended successfully on March 10th 2009
To make sure that every person and every company has a fair chance to register its own .co.nl domain, the launch of the domain registrations is organized via a Sunrise procedure.
Sunrise 1: Grandfather period
Tuesday 18 November 2008 - Thursday 15 January 2009
During the Grandfather period, owners of a .nl have an exclusive right to register their .co.nl as well. This implies that a registrant owning mydomain.nl, will be the only entity that has the opportunity to register mydomain.co.nl during the Grandfather period.
Sunrise 2: Registered Trademarks
Tuesday 10 February 2009 - Tuesday 10 March 2009
Domains that were not registered during Sunrise 1 (Grandfather) can still be claimed by trademark owners during the second phase. These applications will also be reviewed by a Verification Agent.
This sunrise phase will also open and end at 10:00 am GMT.
