GAY: general opening planned for 11 October 2019


On May 23, 2019, Top Level Design, a registry of several new gTLDs, signed the registry agreement for the administration of .GAY with the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN).

A few days earlier (May 17, 2019), Top Level Design announced that the general opening of .GAY was planned for October 11, 2019. This date coincides with the commemoration of Coming Out Day.

The dates of the sunrise period have not been revealed. However, if the date of October 11, 2019 is confirmed, it is highly likely that the sunrise period will take place in the August-September period. Stay informed!
