Short .DE Domains Released:,, and more

On 12 January 2011, 10:00 CET, the central German registry DENIC released nine short .de domains for registration which were previously blocked due to temporary injunctions:,,,,,,, and Domains are now assigned to new owners.

Registration was based on “first come, first served” basis but while usually such domain landrushes are organized through EPP protocol, this time it was based on old school fax technology..

I can’t see any dropcatchers on the list except one: Michau Enterprises Limited (they snapped – European registrar and dropcatcher for .pl, .eu, .de and .sk domains. I am looking forward to see being auctioned at website.

List of all nine short .de domains and owners: Martin Steinkamp Felix Köhler Patrick Federhen Hans Lackner HR STAFFING CORP Martin Steinkamp Michau Enterprises Limited Edit Stein Martin Steinkamp

Some of the names listed above are worth well over 50-100k EUR. It will be interesting to see who will acquire or It is also good to see that HR STAFFING CORP from the US managed to register The more end users use short .de domains, the better.
