Additional Launch Information:

Dates
The Launch Period for .SPORT will start on 4 September 2018 17:00 UTC and will end on 6 November 2018 17:00 UTC: During this Launch Period Applications for all 6 categories will be accepted simultaneously.

Allocation
Applications during the Launch Period will be allocated at the end of this Launch Period window according to the hierarchy of priority status of each category. Thus, each category will be completely allocated (i.e. accepted, rejected or sent to contention resolution) before any name on the next category is allocated.

Validation
Each claim of priority will be individually and thoroughly validated by the Registry Operator. Self-declaration will not be sufficient. Specifically, Registrants are required to state their intended use of the registered domain name. A false statement of intended use is an indication of bad faith and can be the basis for the suspension of the domain name.

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 support@lexsynergy.com to process your application.
