ZIL Sunrise

The .ZIL TLD launched parallel Sunrise and a Pioneer programs in January, 2019 and report having received over 60,000 applications. It is built on top of the Zilliqa Blockchain.

The ICANN Trademark Clearinghouse for protecting exact matches of a registered trademark does not apply for the .ZIL Sunrise period. Instead, .ZIL will recognize more expansive rights, including common law trademarks.

In addition, since there are no Rights Protection Mechanisms, such as Whois, UDRP or URS, the .ZIL Sunrise Period will allow verified trademark owners to register variants of their trademark that are confusingly similar to their trademark or prone to trademark abuse.

Proof of Rights for Sunrise

The proof of rights in a trademark may be demonstrated by:

  • Registered trademark in any jurisdiction
  • Pending or applied-for trademark in any jurisdiction
  • Common law trademarks

Domain Names Eligible for Sunrise

The Trademark Owner may apply for any .ZIL domain name that it feels may be confusing or similar to its trademark string. Examples include but are not limited to the following: exact matches, contained in any strings, phonetically equivalent, misspellings and any abbreviations.

Blockchain FAQs

  • How will I be able to view a blockchain website?
    You will need to use a mirroring service, a browser extension or a browser that supports blockchain domains. Brave is one that supports blockchain domains natively.
  • Will I be able to search for and find blockchain domain websites on Google or other search engines?Major search engines do not currently index blockchain domain websites. For now, you will be able to search for them at unstoppabledomains.com, on partner applications that integrate our search bar, or on blockchain apps that index blockchain domain websites.
  • Are blockchain domains part of ICANN / traditional DNS?No. Blockchain domains are what’s called alternate roots. They are not part of the current DNS.
  • Will there be some sort of ‘whois’ record with my personal information associated to my domain?Not by default. Sharing ‘whois’ information is opt in i.e. something that you can choose to do if you want. Otherwise, your identity will not be publicly known.
  • How do trademarks work with blockchain domains?Trademark holders with proof of ownership can apply to claim ownership of trademarked names. If a trademark name has already been sold, then it will be refunded. Note – this process ends once domains have been distributed. Unstoppable Domains does not have the ability to move a domain once distribution has occurred.
  • How do payments work with my blockchain domain?Add your bitcoin, Ethereum, and Zilliqa addresses to your .zil or .crypto domain inside of the ‘my domains’ section at unstoppabledomains.com. When someone types yourname.zil into a supporting wallet, the wallet looks up that domain on the blockchain, finds the appropriate address, and sends to the address associated with that name.
  • Will I be able to transfer my domain?Yes. The domain is stored in EnCirca’s cryptocurrency wallet and can be transferred to you. Contact support@encirca.com for transfer information.

EnCirca live chat and phone support will be closed for the day.
