Somalian registry postpones landrush

We just received a message of the Somalian registry (.so) to inform us that the landrush for the .so extension will be postponed by 1 week. The landrush, which would originally have started on December 16th, has already been postponed once. The reason for this postponement was the hugh success of the sunrise period for this extension which made the registry decide to extend this sunrise period by 1 month.
