Expression of Interest (EOI) for New TLDs Begins Skip to main.

After overwhelming demand, HEXONET will start taking Expressions-of-Interest (EOI) for newTLDs (new Top-Level-Domains).  HEXONET is using an EOI system instead of take standard pre-registrations since many newTLDs dates and rules are still undetermined.
