The domain for real estate professionals and small businesses is here! .rent domains will start rolling out in less than a month, beginning with the trademark holder exclusive Sunrise registration period on August 3.


We’re sure many of the #GenXYZ members are pretty well-versed in the registration periods for new domains at this point. .rent will be similar – but different – in how it will become available to everyone.

What’s unique about the .rent launch?

As the new authoritative domain for real estate, we will be running a “Real Estate Landrush,” where professionals and businesses in the industry are specially invited to register .rent domains before they become available to all.
