Most of Rightside’s inventory of New Domains has been out for a year or more, and has already allowed thousands of registrants the opportunity to own unique, memorable domains that perfectly suit their business or personal needs. But now, Rightside is releasing their previously unavailable two-character domain inventory, offering buyers an incredible opportunity to register a short, highly-valuable domain. Notable domains that will become available include la.actor, my.news, be.social, and more.

Second Level Early Access Phase for Rightside’s inventory of two-character domains starts on Wednesday, Sept. 14, 2016 at 17:00 UTC, alongside the release of the .GAMES domain. This is an excellent chance for companies, individuals, and investors to get their first pick of two-character domain names before they become generally available the following week. Big name companies are already embracing this premium selection of domains, including The Seattle Times, which recently began using st.news as a URL shortener on social media.

You can browse the inventory of available Rightside two-character domains in this downloadable .CSV file.

The Second Level EAP schedule will be as follows:

Day 1: Wednesday, Sept. 14 —17:00 UTC

Day 2: Thursday, Sept. 15 —17:00 UTC

Day 3: Friday, Sept. 16 —17:00 UTC

Day 4: Saturday, Sept. 17 —17:00 UTC

Day 5: Sunday, Sept. 18 —17:00 UTC

Day 6: Monday, Sept. 19 —17:00 UTC

Day 7: Tuesday, Sept. 2 —17:00 UTC0

General Availability: Wednesday, Sept. 21 —17:00 UTC

If you have any questions, reach out to premiums@name.com and we’ll be happy to assist you.

Please note that any two-character domains searched for before Sept. 14 will appear unavailable for registration until the actual release date. We recommend checking the availability of the domains that you are interested in on Sept. 14 or after to receive more accurate information.
