Rugby Community Priority Registration Period
There will be a Rugby Community Priority period of at least 1 year from the end of Sunrise until the launch of GA. All registrants filing within this period must supply a token by which the registry will confirm (or not) their approval by the community to apply to register .rugby names within this period. Tokens will be issued by WORLD RUGBY, through the National Unions and other community-based administrative entities.
A condition of acceptance of invitation to the Community Priority Period is that the Applicant must use the domain name(s) within one (1) year of allocation. Except with the express written permission of Registry, if the Community Priority Applicant fails to use the domain name for a website within 1 year of registration, then RO reserves the right to revoke, suspend or cancel the registration. Use may include forwarding, other transitional arrangements, hosted website or display marketing including online or offline advertising.
Reserved Domain Names
Some domain names are reserved names; these are names which are ineligible for registration due to ICANN restrictions or Registry Operator designation. Certain Domain names have been classified as Premium and will be sold at higher prices. If you wish to apply for a Premium domain name, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to process your application.
