The New TLD Opportunity You Shouldn’t Miss


dot-id-logoWith all the clamor about new gTLDs, it will be easy to overlook another important new development, the release of .ID at the second level. .ID, although technically for Indonesia, can be used in many interesting ways.

The New .ID extension is currently in Sunrise. The price for Sunrise is quite high, but you trademark holders probably already have a .WEB.ID or .CO.ID domain name and therefore qualify for grandfathering.

The Landrush and GA pricing has not been finalized yet, but the Sunrise and Grandfather pricing has been posted. The company I work for, 101domain, has prices posted at:

  • Sunrise $150 setup + 699 reg
  • Grandfather $100 setup +399 reg
  • Landrush $100 setup +399 reg
  • GA $120

You might need trustee services. There are some limitations but I think that .ID carries as much promise and utility as many of the new gTLDs. For more information see:
