The ".date" generic top-level domain (gTLD) is a new extension in ICANN's generic top level domain programme[1] on the Internet. It is intended to be used by companies and individuals providing or looking for online dating services. This new gTLD will be also available for other disciplines in the online date industry, such as online matchmaking and niche sites. The generic top-level domain is expected to be launched in 2013-2014.

The registry plans to operate a 60-day sunrise period,[2] a 60-day landrush period[3] followed by general availability. Domain name registrations will be available from ICANN accredited registrars.

Domains may be registered on the second level (example.date). It will also be possible to register an e-mail address of the form name@example.date.
