DUBLIN, IRELAND – February 8, 2016 – Afilias, a leading domain registry operator, announces that landrush for the new “dot BET” or .BET top level domain begins today. .BET is the best Internet address for sports betting, gambling, various games of chance and all other online and offline wagering activities. .BET domains immediately convey to a global audience that a site’s content is related to betting and is perfect for marketing as it is short and easy to remember.

.BET LAUNCH DATES:

Landrush: From February 8 through February 12, 2016, .BET domains will be available using a Dutch auction format. During the auction, available names will start at a maximum price, which will be lowered in decrements daily as registrants decide at what price point they wish to register. Names will be awarded on a first come, first serve basis.  Landrush ends on February 12, 2016. All interested gaming fans and organizations should start thinking of the names you want and be ready to “place your .bet” when landrush begins!  Landrush names will be available at your favorite .BET registrar.

Open Registration: Following landrush, there will be a short “quiet period.”  Then, beginning March 3, 2016, .BET names will be available at regular prices via your favorite .BET registrar. For more information about the .BET domain and registration schedule details, please visit www.get.bet.

Online gaming and betting sites continue to grow significantly with millions of players generating billions of dollars in revenues every year.
