Subject: Free Trials of .NAME Domains/Emails
Global Name Registry will be launching a promotion for .NAME in January that will provide for "Free Trial" Registrations of .NAME domains and email addresses. The Free Trial period will be for 30 days and applies to both .NAME second level domains, .NAME third level domains, and .NAME email addresses. Registrars can sign up for this promotion until March 1st.
With this promotion, an individual can have a .NAME address and use it for 30 days without charge. Only after the Free Trial Period, the Registry billable event occurs.
We believe this is a unique offer in the marketplace and allows .NAME to fit with the business models of consumer portals, telcos and similar that may have hundreds of thousands of individual customers, but are unable to market the .NAME products in the absence of a free trial business model which they are accustomed to for consumer products.
In this promotion, the pricing for Free Trial Domains that convert into Activated Registrations will be discounted dependent on the amount of Free Trial Domains initially registered, as well as on the number of resulting Activated Registrations.
For more information on terms and conditions, discount tiers, or other assistance in launching a .NAME promotion, as always, all Registrars are invited to contact Global Name Registry at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We look forward to working with all .NAME Registrars who wish to pursue this exciting opportunity and dramatically grow .NAME in 2005.
