Rollout Plan Overview
Dotmobi launches in late May 2006 with a Sunrise Registration Period open to Trademark holders. This will be followed in late August with the General Registration Period, open to the public, which continues indefinitely.

Sunrise Registration
The Sunrise Registration is an opportunity for trademark holders to register their trademarks as dotmobi names. This is divided into two time periods:

— Limited Industry Sunrise
On Monday May 22nd the mobile industry will have an opportunity to register their Trademark names as dotmobi domain names. The mobile industry will be defined by mTLD and will consist of companies that are members of mobile industry organisations such as GSMA, CTIA and MMA. This Limited Industry Sunrise will continue until Monday May 29th.

— Trademark Sunrise
Monday June 12th is the start of the Trademark Sunrise when all other trademark holders can register their trademark as dotmobi domain names. Trademark Sunrise will continue until Monday August 21st, a period of 70 days.

General Registration
Beginning on August 28th dotmobi registration is open to everyone. This is known as General Registration which continues indefinitely. General Registration commences with a short two week registration period known as Landrush when desirable dotmobi domain names may be registered at a premium price.
