New .CAREER Top Level Domain (TLD) Set to Launch
DotCareer LLC has announced the launch of .CAREER. The first phase of the launch is the .CAREER “End Date” Sunrise Period beginning on June 16th, 2014 for 60 days. During the Sunrise Period, registrants with validated marks in the Trademark Clearinghouse may submit an application for an available domain name in .CAREER that matches their mark in the Trademark Clearinghouse.
Upon close of the Sunrise Period, the Claims Notice Period will commence for 90 days. Registration of any available domain names in .CAREER will be on a first come, first served basis through any .CAREER participating registrar. Following the Sunrise Period, Premium Domain Names in .CAREER (such as TECHNOLOGY.CAREER or NURSING.CAREER) will be available. The list of Premium Names in .CAREER is relatively short.
“.CAREER exists for any individual, organization, recruiter, staffing agency or job board around the world to register any available domain names they choose. Establishing a web site identity in .CAREER is a way to attract and engage job seekers when they are using the Internet for this very purpose” states Ray Fassett, Executive Vice President of DotCareer LLC.
.CAREER is powered by Verisign, the world’s largest domain name registry and a leading provider of secure technical infrastructure for registry operations.
“Verisign is honored to work with DotCareer LLC to provide a suite of back-end registry services for the .CAREER domain,” said Sarah Langstone, director of strategic partnerships at Verisign. “.CAREER offers a unique choice and opportunity for organizations to create an online presence to attract job seekers worldwide. We look forward to providing a highly secure, stable and resilient Internet infrastructure to help meet the technical needs of .CAREER users.”
