Remember that domain you wanted to get under sunrise 1 or 2 that Eurid rejected?
Well it seems those domains are going to be released in a new “landrush” on June 7th.
The problem of the squatters and the phantom registrars, however, as not been dealt with, so whether or not anyone will really gain from this is debatable.
In their defence Eurid adds:
It has been suggested that by publishing a list we are helping the cyber squatters. We believe that these people are well aware of the releases anyway by studying the WHOIS database. By publishing a list, EURid wants to give everybody, including those parties who applied for names during Sunrise, a chance to see when the names will become available again. It also allows EURid to be transparent in what is happening with the Sunrise domain names.
So they are now being transparent? That’s a novelty for them considering the rejection notices that they sent applicants during sunrise…
