Since yesterday, June 14th 2011, DNS.be has changed the transfer procedure for .be domain names. The registry has made this change to simplify a transfer or ownerchange for a .be name.
On June 20th the .com.de extension wil be released. This release will happen in 4 phases: a sunrise, a landrush, a .de registrant promo phase and the general availability.
Today, on June 6th 2011, Norid (.no-registry) will relaunch the .priv.no extension. This domain extension allows individuals to register a Norwegian domain name. Previously this was impossible since you need to meet very strict conditions to register a .no domain name.
Today, June 1st 2011, the landrush for 2 character and numeric .tel names has started. This landrush ends on June 13th 2011 and will be followed by the general availability which begins on June 14th.
