SGNIC have announced the release of a limited number of premium .SG domain names, ranging in price from S$642 to $21,400. Where there is a domain name with multiple applications, the domain name will go to the applicant with the highest bid. The domains are available for application between 1 and 31 July.
The Premium domain names are names that are limited in quantity and command a higher value than non-premium domain names. They include:
(a) Single character domain names (“SCDNs”), i.e. a name which is made up of a single alphabet, with a Base Price of $20,000. For example, A, B, C, … X, Y, Z; and
(b) Numeric domain names (“NDNs”) i.e. a name which is made up of:
(i) All single digits. For example, 0, 1, 2 … 9. These are classified as NDN (Platinum) with a Base Price of $20,000;
(ii) All 2 digits. For example, 00, … 99. These are classified as NDN (Golden) with a Base Price of $1,000;
(iii) All 3 and 4 digits. These are classified as either NDN (Golden) or NDN(Silver) depending on the combination. The Base Price of a NDN (Silver) is $600; or
(iv) Selected 5 to 11 digits, which are classified as either NDN (Golden) or NDN(Silver) depending on the combination.
If there is a premium name not available in this round, potential registrants are encouraged to contact SGNIC by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. If there are sufficient demand for those PDNs, SGNIC will release them in subsequent launches.
