What names can I register?

You can register ANY name that fits the following criteria:

  • Less than 63 characters long
  • Is not an existing ICANN TLD (so that using Handshake doesn't break your internet browsing experience)
  • Is not an Alexa top 100k domain name (only google.com can register .google)
  • Contains alphanumeric characters (A-Z, 0-9) and/or dashes. Unicode characters are supported via the punycode format.

As you can see, the name possibilities are practically infinite. You can search for when you can start bidding on your name in the first 52 weeks of Handshake's launch on the Namebase Domains page.
