SUNRISE PHASE – 17th March to 16th May 2015

A 60 day ‘Sunrise’ period provides trademark holders with a valuable opportunity to protect their brand names and trademarks by registering their dot irish domain name before they become generally available.  If more than one Sunrise application for the same Domain Name Character String meet the eligibility criteria, the Sunrise applications will be submitted to an auction.

All applicants must have a valid SMD file supplied via the TMCH.

If you need help registering names in Sunrise or the TMCH please contact us.
