[gtld-council] Issues with "sunrise" and "landrush"
Hello All, One of the issues raised by Kiyoshi Tsuru at the meeting in Wellington was considering how to scale the sunrise/landrush process when a new TLD starts. Each gTLD operator in the 2000 and 2004 rounds has used a different approach to sunrise and landrush. There is now substantial experience in the registry and registrar community but often new operators don't necessarily take advantage of this expertise. If we introduce more TLDs,it would be useful to have a standardised approach that minimises the cost for registrants and suppliers. Attached is an example of a submission from one Registrar, GoDaddy, that might stimulate some thinking on this topic. I recommend we consider setting up a small working group to consider some approaches to this as part of the new policy on new TLDs relating to contractual conditions (which currently often include sunrise processes).
