What is Sunrise?

Last Updated: Jul 22, 2017 08:59AM EDT

The Sunrise period was the first phase of the .health launch – it was a 60-day period during which trademark holders (who are in the ICANN Trademark Clearinghouse) had an advance opportunity to register .health domain names corresponding to their trademarks before .health domain names are available to others. The Sunrise period for .health was an "end date" Sunrise. In this type of Sunrise, trademark holders had the duration of the Sunrise period to submit a claim for a domain corresponding to their trademark. At the end of the period, all the claims were registered and auctions were conducted if there was more than one claim for the same domain name. dotHealth LLC chose this type of Sunrise in order to protect the rights of trademark holders.
