Reserved Names
fTLD on Twitter

Reserved Names are domain names that have been reserved by fTLD Registry Services (fTLD) or ICANN and are not available for immediate registration. Some of these names may become available for registration through a “challenge” process. To learn how to submit a challenge with fTLD, see the Reserved Names Challenge section.

fTLD Reserved Names

The lists below implicitly include reservation of all translations and transliterations of the names. For names consisting of more than one word (e.g., “actualcashvalue”), the hyphenated version (e.g., “actual-cash-value”) is also reserved.

fTLD reserves the right to both amend these non-exhaustive lists and to allocate names in the future under one or more of the mechanisms in its Name Allocation Policy accessible here.

The current list of ICANN reserved names is available here.

Reserved Names Challenge

fTLD’s Reserved Names Challenge Policy, accessible here, provides the two-step process for an eligible entity to request or challenge allocation of a Reserved Name.

Step 1: Initiate a request or challenge by completing the Reserved Names Complaint Form and submitting it to complaint@fTLD.com. A successful request or challenge does not result in the requestor being awarded the name, but rather gives them an opportunity to compete to receive it.

Step 2: fTLD makes the formerly reserved name available for allocation by one of the mechanisms in the Name Allocation Policy (e.g., Request for Proposal (RFP)).

Please contact fTLD at fTLD@fTLD.com with any questions about Reserved Names.
