What is the .xxx domain Sunrise Pre-order phase?

This article applies to .XXX domain names registration


The Sunrise Pre-order phase will give you the chance to secure a .XXX domain before anyone else and before general availability pre-orders start as long as you fall into one of the below categories.


Adult industry

SUNRISE AT - Adult industry trademark holders

Sunrise AT is specifically for owners of existing adult trademarks.

Sunrise AT applications will receive priority over Sunrise B applications.

SUNRISE AD - Existing adult industry domain owners

Sunrise AD is specifically aimed at customers who already hold pre-existing exact match domain names in any extension (TLD) prior to 1st February 2010.

Sunrise AD applications will receive priority over Sunrise B applications.


Non-adult industry

SUNRISE B - Non-adult indusry trademark holders

Sunrise B is for trademark owners outside of the adult industry who want to protect their brand from being associated with adult material and to stop their trademarks being registered by others.

Adult community trademark (AT) and existing adult domain (AD) Sunrise applicants will take priority over Sunrise B applicants. Successful applications will not result in ownership of the domain, but will block others from registration.

The Sunrise period has now ended.


Sunrise AT & AD members of the Sponsored Community are required to authenticate with the registry before they are awarded the domain or proceed to auction.

If you fail to do this within 48 hours of the closing of Sunrise, you will lose your application and no refund will be provided. Further instructions will be provided to all applicants in advance if authentication is required.

Please note: Sunrise applications are non-refundable and a closed auction process will be used for domain names that have more than one applicant.
