|Open From 14 September '15|
.tickets provides a platform for ticketing services, booking agents, airlines, concert organizers and the like. The .tickets extension is the authenticated online space for all ticketing services.
The extension offers peace of mind to customers and buyers, as .tickets websites are required to undergo a verification process and adhere to a model code of conduct combining transparency with a robust approach to rights protection.
The Applicant must have an Eligible Right in respect of the domain, which is either:
A nationally or regionally registered trade mark registered in respect of tickets or ticketing goods or services;
A name or other term that, while not registered as a trade mark, has been used in trade to distinguish the tickets or ticketing goods or services of one undertaking from those of another (common law rights). Non-exhaustive examples of tickets and ticketing goods or services are set out in Appendix 1 in the Registry Policies. What constitutes tickets or ticking goods or services for the purposes of this policy will be decided by the Registry at its sole discretion.
Proxy and/or Privacy registrations are not permitted in that the registrant information cannot be concealed.
All applicants will be subject to:
Enhanced Whois Verification
Failure to provide accurate Whois Data and/or documentary evidence within the prescribed time limit could result in suspension or cancellation of an Application or Registration. This decision can be appealed.
Standard Track Processing (“STP”)
All applications will be processed according to the STP unless the FTP (see below) is requested within 5 business days of the Registry receiving the application. The STP means that you cannot demonstrate a pre-existing right to use the name or you do not wish to submit evidence of rights. If you can demonstrate such rights the FTP is recommended.
If the STP is taken the applied for domain could be subject to a Competing Application from another applicant who has taken the FTP. The applied-for domain will be advertised on the Registry-owned website http://check.tickets for up to 30 days (“Advertisement Period”). During this period, the domain is open to Competing Applications.
If there is a Competing Application, together with evidence of rights that conforms to Registry’s requirements, then one of two outcomes will occur:
Fast Track Processing (“FTP”)
Available if you can demonstrate a pre-existing eligible right in the requested name. Applicant must request Fast Track Processing within five business days of acknowledgment of the application by the registry. This means the domain name will not be advertised and registered soon after verification.
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 email@example.com to process your application.
