online-domain With 15 days still to go, Radix expects some more last minute orders to further bump up the number, making .online a strong sunrise performer among other new domain launches.

.online has been amongst the most coveted new extensions in this round. Radix has gone a long way in securing .online – from beating Donuts, Iregistry & Whatbox in a private auction to buying back full rights to own and operate the TLD from JV Partners – Tucows &Namecheap.

Radix has actively been promoting .online as the hero of their portfolio across several conferences. Leading Registrars like GoDaddy, 1&1, UnitedDomains etc. have already started marketing the domain extension a month before launch, building up on  pre-registrations.

Just like .site & .tech, .online will go through an Early Access Phase and then enter General Availability.

Here is the launch schedule

Sunrise ends – 17th Aug, 2015
Early Access Phase – 19th Aug to 26th Aug
General Availability starts – 26th Aug
