.SO extends sunrise, delays landrush

.SO Registry, the company behind the newly launched Somalian top-level domain, has added an extra month to its sunrise period and delayed its landrush accordingly.

The trademark-holders-only sunrise was due to run for the month of November. Instead, it will now end December 31.

The registry said on Thursday that the changes were made “due to the high demand” for sunrise registrations.

The landrush, which will be open to all, is now scheduled to launch January 11.

    It couldbe related due to web interface registration.. But i am not buying the story. My guess is there is barely any sunrise registrations..

    No hard facts just a guess.

    Thanks for the post.
