Launch of .UY second level domain registrations
The registration of second level domains .UY will be available in Uruguay, under the “first come, first served” rule, as from July 10th, 2012.
Owner of third level domains .COM.UY registered before or until June 10th, 2012, will obtain the corresponding second level domain for free, i.e., the owner of domain.com.uy will obtain the registration of domain.uy automatically, without the need of applying for registration. This registration will be valid for one year.
In case two or more domains are registered under third level domains for the same denomination (e.g.: domain.com.uy, domain.net.uy, etc.), the date of registration of the third level domain will define, who has the right to obtain the second level domain. The information regarding the granting of these free second level registrations will be available one week after the official granting is completed.
Owners of those registered .UY domains, who wish to keep them after the 1-year period, will have to pay the renewal fee once this term elapses.
If there is no interest in keeping these domains same may be allowed to drop.
