Sunrise Period starts for the Microsoft .OFFICE new gTLD

Microsoft is launching domain names ending in ".office".

According to Jean Guillon:
Domain names ending in ".office" will belong to Microsoft only: it will not be possible to register any of these by third parties. The TMCH website says: "One of Microsoft’s newest top-level domains, .office may be used in the future as opportunities arise. Office is a leading global brand for getting things done. Domain names in .office can only be registered by Microsoft and our authorized employees and affiliates."

The Sunrise Period:
  • SUNRISE PERIOD START: Wednesday, 4 November, 2015 - 16:00;
