Subject: .INFO LandRush further delayed...



Here's an email I just received from RegistrationTechnologies. The submission of LandRush names seems to be delayed another few days, but it appears the LandRush will still be over before October.


"Greetings Customer:

We apologize for sending you email without your prior consent. However, Afilias has made an important change that will impact the status of your submission. It shall be our policy only to send mailings to our customers when we have important information that directly relates to them. We shall never use your email address for mass-marketing purposes.

Earlier this evening, Afilias, the .INFO registry company, notified us that they are changing the schedule of their "Landrush" start-up period.  We have updated our web site to reflect these changes at:

In summary, Afilias has extended their deadline for accepting
submissions from September 18th to September 21st at 11:59PM UTC (7:59PM EDT or 4:59PM PDT). Accordingly, Registration Technologies, Inc., will continue accepting submissions from our customers until at least September 20th at 11:59PM UTC (7:59PM EDT or 4:59PM PDT). We will stop accepting submissions before Afilias does to ensure we have plenty of time to place all submissions. If we have no difficulties, we may accept submissions several hours longer than currently planned. If you have additional submissions you are planning
to place, we encourage you to do so before September 20th at 11:59PM

At this time, we have placed all submissions possible with Afilias. We were unable to submit names to Afilias that were already registered during the Sunrise period. We will be refunding any submission fees paid for these names as per our policy, which is available on our web site at:

Soon, we will be sending email to customers individually to explain the status of each of their submission requests. For each name submitted, we will provide a unique "ROID" number issued by Afilias and also the exact date and time the submission was made.

Currently, Afilias plans to complete their processing and announce
domain name awards by September 27th. We will forward this information to you as quickly as possible after we receive it.
If you have any questions about this schedule change or anything else, please feel free to email us at and we will do our best to assist you.

Thanks for your time and thanks again for your business!

James W. Archer
Registration Technologies, Inc."
