.NYC Reserved Domains - Available on October 8, 2015
In celebration of its first anniversary, the .NYC Registry will be making 16,674 previously blocked .NYC collision domain names available for registration on October 8, 2015. These value domain names are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Many domains on the collision list are high value keywords and brandable names that are likely to be in high demand.
The .NYC collision domains offered provides New Yorkers with an opportunity to register a host of short, memorable domain names in the .NYC name space that have previously been unavailable – all at standard .NYC prices. Please note that any trademark terms that were on the .NYC collision list and applied for during the .NYC Sunrise Period have already been allocated; domain names that were previously reserved by the .NYC Registry as “Premium Domains” and/or “City Affiliated Domains” will continue to be reserved by the Registry. In addition, the .NYC Registry will also release 87 previously held but abandoned auction domain names from the .NYC Landrush Phase.
