2022-01-25.DAY Launch - EAP started!

.DAY is the new secure name space of Google Registry in which registrants can create domains that relate to memorable and special days along with physical or online events.

Launch Schedule:

  • Sunrise: Beendet
  • Early Access Program (EAP): January 25 (16:00 UTC) until February 1, 2022 (15:59 UTC). First-come, first-served.
  • General Availability (GA): As of February 1, 2022 (16:00 UTC). First-come, first-served.

Please note the following requirement: .DAY is HTTPS-only. The entire .DAY namespace has been added to the HSTS Preload list. As such, all second-level domains under .DAY will only load on modern browsers if a valid SSL certificate has been configured and the webserver is serving HTTPS. Resellers are required to include language in their registration flow to make users aware of this feature. More details is available in our Knowledge Base.
