Last week the Polish ccTLD registry ended the possibility where it was possible to reserve .pl domain names for 14 days prior to registration. So now under .pl, it’s a first come, first served basis as is the norm for registering domain names in probably all other top-level domains.
After 8 January, .pl domain name reservations will be effected only by NASK in the following situations:
- execution of the option for a .pl domain name, i.e. providing a domain name for registration for the benefit of an option holder in accordance with the information published on this website.
- provision of a domain name for registration after a legally binding court decision.
With the withdrawal of reservations, NASK eliminates the status for unregistered .pl domain names that have passed after the reservation period, i.e. the BOOK_BLOCKED state. All reservations, from this moment on, will result in a direct release of a domain name to the public. NASK originally advised of the upcoming change in June 2019.
