On October 8, 2015, in celebration of .nyc Registry’s first anniversary, it will be making 16,674 of previously blocked .nyc Collision List domain names available for registration on a first-come, first-served basis. While some of these domain names may seem like “gibberish” terms – many others consist of high value generic keywords and potential trademarks and trade names. This will provide New Yorkers with an opportunity to register a host of short, memorable domain names in the .nyc name space that have previously been unavailable – all at standard .nyc prices. Please note domain names that were previously reserved by the .nyc Registry as “Premium Domains” and/or “City Affiliated Domains” will continue to be reserved by the .nyc Registry, and will be unavailable for general registration. In addition, the .nyc Registry will also release the previously held 87 Abandoned Auction domain names from the .nyc Landrush Phase which may also include certain trademark affililations.
