The Sunrise is divided into three concurrent phases:

Sunrise 1 (SR1): for domains from the governmental reserved names list

Sunrise 2 (SR2): for registered trademarks

Sunrise 3 (SR3): for registered names and extended protection (e.g. for ASCII .ASIA domain name holders with Romanized or transliterated names).

Landrush Period: August 2 (12:00 UTC) to October 11, 2011 (24:00 UTC)

The regular ASCII .ASIA prices apply, minimum registration period: 2 years.
