Sunrise period for .EE domain names containing letters with diacritical marks begins today
“The international experience has proved the need for such a sunrise period. There was no sunrise period before introduction of .EU domain names containing letters with diacritical marks in the European Union member-states and this omission attracted speculative purchasers of valuable domain names. The purpose of the sunrise period for the particular .EE domains is to offer companies and physical persons an opportunity to protect those .EE domain names containing letters with diacritical marks that resemble their trademarks, business or product names, by reserving the domain names pursuant to a prior right,” said Marek-Andres Kauts, Chairman of the Management Board of the Estonian Internet Foundation. The sunrise period is a voluntary event.
During the reservation period you can submit applications for reservation of the relevant domain names of the following varieties:
- a business name (including a self-employed person’s business name) entered in the Estonian Commercial Register or a name entered in the register of non-profit associations and foundations;
- a trademark registered in Estonia;
- the surname of the physical person as of the application submission date;
- the first name(s) and surname of the physical person as of the application submission date.

The .ee domain remains popular in Estonia, despite various platforms that could have set certain growth restrictions on the total number of domains. One of the key drivers behind this growth are the physical constraints associated with the pandemic and the resulting migration of companies to digital channels.

The purpose of the name contest, organised by the Language Inspectorate, is to draw the attention of entrepreneurs and the public to the increasing spread of foreign languages in the public sphere. In addition to the names of a company, an institution, a non-governmental organisation and a student company, there is also a search for a national domain that sounds beautiful, and that is simple and distinctive, clear and meaningful.
