What is meant by a «Dutch auction»?

As part of the launch of the new .zuerich domain, the first ten days of the «general availability» phase (starting on November 22, 2021) will be conducted based on the «Dutch auction» model. This means that the prices for the first contracted year will be very high on the first day of the auction and will then reduce every day until they reach the standard price. From the second year onwards, the standard price will be charged nonetheless.

Hostpoint will therefore not submit your application for registration until after 2:00 pm (CET) on December 2, unless you explicitly request earlier registration and want to take part in the «Dutch auction». If this is the case, please contact us immediately after ordering at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. You will be given an exact price in advance by e-mail.
