Spain’s .ES domain has been restricted to registrations by Spain residents and businesses only–until tomorrow. .ES will be open for international registrations in a unique stagger-step approach.
-Tuesday, Nov 8 at 7AM CET (US EST Time + 6 Hours, so 1AM EST) you can register domains beginning with numbers or the letters ‘a’ and ‘b’
-Wednesday, Nov 9 7AM CET you can also register domains starting with ‘c’ to ‘e’
-Thursday, Nov 10 7AM CET you can also register domains starting with ‘f’ to ‘n’
-Friday, Nov 11 7AM CET open registration for all domains
It will be interesting to see if this load-balancing technique works.
