Dot Vegas is releasing 2,200 previously blocked .vegas domain names from 1 August.
The registry says that the domain names will be released “in an ongoing effort to increase awareness and usage.” Upon their release the domains will go through the appropriate process of a claims period before they go to open registration.
The claims period will begin on 1 August and run for 90 days. After that time the domain names will go to the open period, which starts on 1 November and be available through their usual registrars and resellers.
An online contact form [here] on the Dot Vegas website can be completed to obtain a complete list of the domain names being released.
