About .HAUS Domain Names

The .haus domain extension is perfect for German-speaking realtors, home inspectors, contractors, builders and assessors. It’s short, it’s sweet and it tells the world you’re in the home business.

Pre-Registration Information

The .haus launch is divided into three pre-registration phases: Trademark Holder (Sunrise), Priority Pre-Registration (Landrush) and General Availability. Each phase has specific application requirements:

Pre-Registration

Pre-registration gives you the best possible chance of securing a domain name before it's available to the general public, but it doesn't guarantee you will get it. You can pre-register for Sunrise, Landrush and General Availability phases, and we'll submit your registration application when the phase begins.

If you are awarded the domain name, you have 5 days to cancel your domain name and get a refund of the registration fee only.

Trademark Holders Registration - Sunrise

Once this phase opens, trademark holders can submit an application to register a .haus domain containing their owned mark, before it's available to the public.

Trademark validation goes through the Trademark Clearinghouse (TMCH), which is an ICANN global repository for trademark data. Visit the TMCH website for information on registering a trademark.

Bulk .haus registration is not supported during Sunrise.

If you aren’t able to secure the domain name, we’ll refund the registration fee. Application fees will not be refunded.

If you are awarded the domain name, you have 5 days to cancel your domain name and get a refund of the registration fee only.

Priority Pre-Registration - Landrush

Customers can purchase .haus domain names at a premium price. A non-refundable application fee in addition to the domain's registration fee is collected when the registration request is submitted.

Bulk .haus registration is not supported during Landrush.

Domains registered during Landrush will renew at the standard General Availability renewal price unless they are premium names.

If you are awarded the domain name, you have 5 days to cancel your domain name and get a refund of the registration fee only.
