Short .DE Domains Released: HR.de, E.de, G.de 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: dw.de, e.de, f.de, g.de, hr.de, sr.de, x.de, y.de and z.de. 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 x.de) – European registrar and dropcatcher for .pl, .eu, .de and .sk domains. I am looking forward to see x.de being auctioned at Aftermarket.pl website.

List of all nine short .de domains and owners:

dw.de Martin Steinkamp
e.de Felix Köhler
f.de Patrick Federhen
g.de Hans Lackner
hr.de HR STAFFING CORP
sr.de Martin Steinkamp
x.de Michau Enterprises Limited
y.de Edit Stein
z.de Martin Steinkamp

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

One- and two-character domains allowed in .DE ccTLD

DENICDENIC will amend its Domain Guidelines with effect from 23 October 2009 and will thus abolish most of the restrictions currently applicable with regard to the registration of second level domains under the TLD .de. In doing so, the registry creates room for a large number of new domains. In future, also one- and two-character domains (digits and letters) as well as domain names composed exclusively of numerals will be allowed.”

“Parties interested in a “new” domain may now apply for their desired domain with their Internet service provider. The launch phase for the new domains will start on 23 October 2009 at 09:00 (MEST). To ensure a quick, secure, transparent and above all fair assignment procedure, DENIC will register the new domains applying the “first come, first served” principle.”

As from 23 October 2009 the following additional rules will apply for domains under the TLD .de:

  • One- and two-character domains as well as domain names composed exclusively of numerals can now be registered
  • Domains identical with combinations of letters that are used for motor-vehicle number plates or for TLDs are released for registration.
  • If I were DENIC I would sell new domains through auction. I would then pass money from the auction to some charity organization (DENIC is not-for-profit company). I am not sure if “first come, first served” is the best way to introduce one and two-digit domains on such a mature market as German one. What’s your opinion? Leave a comment!

    Few facts about .DE (German) market:

    .DE
    Number of domains 13,134,897
    Domains per 1000 residents 160
    Registration fee 3,00 EUR net
    Renewal fee 3,00 EUR net
