Apply to reserve your .eco domain before March 31, 2017
Endorsed by WWF, Greenpeace and NRDC, .eco is a trusted, verified symbol for organizations, businesses and people committed to positive change for the planet.
Until March 31, 2017 environmental non-profits can reserve .eco domains for their trade names. A trade name is any version of your organization’s name—it could be your official name, an acronym or the name your organization commonly goes by. Reserve a .eco domain before March 31, 2017 to get it free for the first year.
For example, if your current URL is NorthWestWatershedAlliance.org, you can apply to reserve: NorthWestWatershedAlliance.eco, NWWA.eco or WatershedAlliance.eco.
We’ll let you know if you’ve successfully reserved your .eco trade name domain before April 18, 2017. On April 25, 2017 you can activate your domain and begin using it free for the first year.
We will review your application and get back to you in early April to let you know if your .eco name has been allocated to you.
A trade name is a name by which an organization is commonly known. It can also be an acronym.
.eco trade names are free for the first year. Renewals will be between US $75 - $100, depending on what retailer you renew them at.
When we write to tell you if you have been successful in reserving your .eco trade name, we will let you know how to activate your new domain.
Like all new top-level domains, we're providing a window for trademark holders to reserve their marks before our public launch. In the domain industry, this is known as the "sunrise period." After the sunrise period is complete, we will be able allocate community trade name domains, starting from April 18, 2017.
At this time, you can only reserve a .eco domain for your trade name. We do have an early adopter program. If you are ready to start using your .eco domain right away, you can email email@example.com with your idea. We are especially interested in hearing from small businesses and non-profits.
The support for the .eco community domain by non-profits like WWF, Greenpeace and Conservation International is a key part of what made the .eco domain a reality. Helping the non-profit community protect their trade names is one way we can acknowledge their important role in creating this new online home for the environmental community.
