Your domain pre-order questions, answered
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 .BUY 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 .BUY web address?
There is no exact launch date yet. We hope registrations to begin this year, 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 .BUY domain pricing will be announced closer to the Sunrise (for trademark owners) and Landrush (general availability) periods.
