The seemingly, unending sage of the .CM Landrush, and live registration mode, has gotten another push back.
The .CM registry announced today, that the Landrush (the pre-order process) for .CM domains, which closed back on July 31st, will now be re-opened for two more weeks, starting on Monday.
The registry will not accept Live registrations until August 27th.
The following is posted on the .CM registry site this morning:
“””First of all we would like to apologize for the delay of the “Go Live” and we highly appreciate the patience you have had with us, while we were working to resolve the technical issues.
Many registrars were confused with the end date of landrush and, thus, failed to submit all the landrush domains before we actually locked down the system. Therefore we have decided to re-open landrush for an additional two weeks, starting on Monday.
Re opening of landrush: 10th August 2009 at 00:00:01 UTC.
Closing of landrush: 23rd August 2009 at 23:59:59 UTC.
To ensure that all historical domain data will be correctly imported into our system and to avoid mistakes we will lock down our zone for three days after landrush period. Go live will start on the 4th day.
Go Live: 27th August 2009 at 00:00:01 UTC.””
NameJet, our auction partner will announce the new date for the auction start on their website and will also inform the bidders via email.
As we have written before, live registrations were suppose to start on August 1, but due to technical difficulties, the start was delayed.
So starting on Monday, you will once again, be able to backorder .CM domains at NameJet.com. (Landrush).
The Landrush period will close on August 24th and the go live will begin on August 27.
Once again Note all times are in UTC which is EST +4 hours
