Introducing. ECO, a new top-level domain created by and for the environmental community!

On February 1, 2017, you’ll get the opportunity to secure your organization’s name or trademark in “sunrise” for the new top level domain .ECO

The “eco” label has long been used to identify individuals, organizations, and activities committed to respectful, responsible, and sustainable use of the environment.

The “eco” label will also provide a platform for accurate and non-deceptive information and reliable resources to encourage environmental awareness and action on sustainability.

Unlike other top-level domains, .ECO will ONLY be available to organizations, businesses and people committed to positive change for the planet. Endorsed by over 50 environmental organizations, including WWF, Greenpeace and NRDC, .ECO is a trusted, verified symbol for the environmental community.

Don’t miss this one-time chance to use the campaign domain you’ve always dreamed of. You can apply for a .ECO domain grant if:

• Your organization is a not-for-profit, charity or government
• Environmental work is central to your mission
• You plan to actively use your .ECO domain within a year of receiving it

The release dates for .ECO are:

Sunrise period: 1 February – 2 April
General launch: 18 April
If you are active in the environmental community and want to apply in “sunrise” but do not have your trademarks registered in the “Trademark Clearinghouse” we at Ports group will be happy to assist you with an application.
