.mx domain extension is available
As from September 1st, until October 31, 2009 there is an initial registration stage, within which an .mx domain extension is available for any applying person or organization, provided that the domain name is not reserved (due to the pre-registration or other technical reasons).
The criterion applied in this new phase is governed on a first come, first served basis, i.e., priority is given to the one who applies for the domain registration first.
NIC Mexico reopened the registration of .mx country code top-level domains (ccTLC), which had been suspended for over a decade. The sunrise period (provided priority to the owner of second-level domains, which had been registered before March 1, 2009.) for re-registration started in May and ended on July 31, 2009. During that period, second-level domains (e.g. .com.mx, .net.mx, .edu.mx, etc.) registered until March 1, 2009 were blocked and only their owners had the priority to apply for the identical top level domain .mx.
Furthermore, from August 1st to August 31, 2009 a Waiting Period was in place, within which the applications for .mx domains were processed and the remaining blocked domains were unblocked.
