What can I do with .new?
.new is a namespace for action generation or online creation fl ows. It will be a secure TLD that requires
HTTPS in Web browsers. It will be available to all registrants but feature usage restrictions that all
domains be used for action generation or online content creation. Some examples of already .new
domains that Google has made available are docs.new, sheets.new and slides.new. Navigation to a .new
domain must bring a user directly into the action generation or online creation fl ow. The only exception to this rule is for secure sites that require a user to fi rst login, and in this case the user must immediately
be brought to an action generation page aft er authentication.
How will the Registration Policy be enforced?
Google Registry will actively enforce compliance. Registrations must be compliant with the Registration
Policy and resolve to an action generation or online content creation fl ow at most 100 days from the
initial registration date, or compliance action may be taken. Non-compliant registrants will be notifi ed by
the Registry using the Registrars’ pass-through communication method. Registrants will be provided an
opport unity to remediate by coming into compliance with the .new Registration Policy. Registrations that
do not come into compliance with the Registration Policy within the specifi ed windows may be
suspended or deleted, without refund.
Website services that require an account in order to access content or undert ake activities may register
.new domain names, however upon request, access must be provided to Google Registry or its
designee free-of-charge for the purpose of verifying compliance with the Registration Policy.
The requirement for a name to be live within 100 days of registration is waived for Sunrise registrations.
The name is never required to resolve, but must be compliant with the Registration Policy if/when it does.
What is the process for registering a name during LRP?
