Pre-order your .App domain

We'll let you know when you can reserve and register your own dot App domain name.

Developers: this is YOUR domain!

Three of the biggest app stores (App store, Google Play store and Windows Phone store) combined have close to 1.6 million apps and the numbers are ever increasing. On average, users have 40-50 apps on their phones, most of which are free and some of which are paid, in order to enhance the user's smartphone experience. Apps have become an integral part of people's daily lives and many of them are so important to individuals that their day is in tatters without some of the apps. That's the sort of power apps have been able to harness, thanks to some of the amazing functionality and ingenious minds working behind these apps. The .app extension offers the perfect platform for app developers to showcase their app(s) to the whole world where users can take a look at the features, screenshots, feedback form, platforms it's available in and even a how-to guide for the app making it much easier to access this information. The .app extension will help apps have their own unique identity on the web and driven marketing strategies to such a website can aid the developers in increasing the reach to its users, thereby increasing the number of downloads.

Important information

This pre-order is simply an expression of interest and does not secure your desired domain name:

  • Because others may be seeking the same domain name, we cannot guarantee your pre-order registration.
  • All domains ordered by multiple customers will go through an internal lottery once the pre-registration period is over.
  • If your order is selected by iwantmyname, it will then be submitted against all other domain registrars who may be after the same domain.
  • For some of the more popular requests, it will take a bit of luck, but rest assured, we will do our very best to secure your requested domain for you.

What is the .APP domain extension?

It's a new generic top-level domain (gTLD) which will be released by the internet's governing body ICANN as one of the many domain alternatives to the existing .COM, .NET or .ORG suffixes.

When can I buy a .APP web address?

There is no exact launch date yet. We hope registrations to begin in 2015, subject to approval by ICANN. You can pre-order domains at iwantmyname before launch and we will attempt to register them as soon as the registry opens.

How much will it cost?

No price available at this stage. Our .APP domain pricing will be announced closer to the Sunrise (for trademark owners) and Landrush (general availability) periods.
