.tickets is a new breed of top level domain (TLD) designed specifically for the world of ticketing. It has been designed to simplify consumer choice, whilst serving the ticketing industry and associated trade sectors within commerce, entertainment, sport, travel and destinations of choice.
.tickets operates a unique and industry-leading Rights Protection Mechanism, publishing the names of those who apply for domains without first submitting valid evidence of rights. This allows both rights holders and the IP community to challenge any attempted breach of their intellectual property.
.tickets encourages innovation. By bringing highly marketable domains together with entrepreneurs and innovators, we facilitate business growth and new ideas within the industry.
.tickets is the obvious and simple ‘peace-of-mind’ choice for ticket buyers. Not only is it an obvious destination for ticket purchasing, but consumers will feel safer knowing that each retailer has undergone a validation procedure before being allowed to operate.
Anyone can apply for a .tickets domain, and will be treated on a first come first served basis. However sensitive domains will be subject to additional verification through our Rights Protection Service.
The majority of names passed onto the verification team will be approved within 5 business days.
If a name is considered sensitive with no obvious trademark held by the applicant, the domain will be published for 60 days on domains.watch to allow those with valid rights the opportunity to challenge the application. If you are applying for a sensitive domain but do not have evidence of rights to the name, it is possible that you will not be able to complete registration.
