.SO Domain Information

.so launch starts from 1st November 2010, involving a multi-phase plan to ensure for the stable and orderly distribution of domains. The Launch has three core stages:
  • Sunrise 1st November 2010 - 30th November 2010:
    In Sunrise phase, Between 1st November 2010 to 30th November 2010, any trademark - obtained with a registered status on or before 1st January 2010 - may apply for a .so domain. These trademarks need to be registered in a trademark office or registry that corresponds to a state or entity described in the WIPO Standard ST.3 code. This allows companies to apply for their desired domain or domains and secure their trademarks. Only the first validated application is allocated to the .CO.NO domain. The applied domain name should be EXACT MATCH to Trademark.
