What Is A Domain Name Land Rush? (Infographic)

club-new-gtldIf you’ve been following .CLUB you probably know that they are now in the “Land Rush” period which began on April 1, 2014 and which ends on May 1, 2014.  But what is a “Land Rush”???   As they explain at www.landrush.club applying for a name during Land Rush (also called “Priority Pre-Registration”) costs a little more, but can dramatically increase your chances of getting the exact .CLUB name you want.

With that in mind, now is the time to register if you want to get in on .CLUB’s Land Rush.  After Land Rush closes on May 1, if you are the only applicant for a name, you get it.  If there are multiple applicants for the same name then you will be invited to an auction for the name, managed by SEDO. There are some really great .CLUB names available during Land Rush, so stake your claim before the May 1st deadline.

Here’s an infographic .Club made to help explain how the Land Rush/Priority Pre-Registration works:

  1. did .club payed you for that threat ? 😛

    i think that landrush is a scam
    as I understood, there is no fee refund (160$-220$) if you loose the auction ! w00t ?!
    but i dont know, its so difficult to get such important information .. maybe somewhere in lower case

    • This is not quite right. Every registrar can set its own payment policies, but from the Registry end, we refund all non-winning Landrush applications. I’m confident that a number of our Landrush registrars will refund losing Landrush bids, but I would advise all buyers to read the T&Cs before purchasing anything.

  2. come on ! .. africa.club was free yesterday .. but not anymore. same with many many others

    i dont like that shit

    i am wondering if they are just scanning the requests and claim them

  3. by choosing to not participate in the auction, do you get refunds on land rush fee at 101domain.com
