Limited Registration Period(LRP)
In the New Generic Top-Level Domain Program (New gTLD Program), any registration period in which a registry operator (RO) imposes registration restrictions beyond the restrictions imposed by the gTLD’s general registration policy.
ROs can offer an LRP between the end of the Sunrise Period and the start of general registration. If an RO offers an LRP, all registrations during the LRP must be subject to the Claims Service in the same manner as registrations registered or allocated during the Trademark Claims Period.
