ABA Issues Reminder on .bank Registrars as June 23 Nears

With the general availability period for applying for .bank domains coming on June 23 at 8 p.m. EDT, ABA urges bankers considering a .bank domain to carefully select a registrar in advance based on considerations of both service and price. ABA recently updated its webpage of registrars approved for .bank domains and offered several questions bankers may wish to consider as they select a registrar.

General availability for .bank domains opens on the evening of June 23, but registration of bank names that have been previously registered in an international trademark directory continued during the .bank “sunrise” period that ends tomorrow. Nearly 700 banks have applied for .bank domains during the sunrise period.
