EAP the earliest opportunity for members of the public to register domains under certain extensions. Availability during EAP is first come, first served.
If you'd like to take part in the EAP of a domain extension for which EAP is available, you must pre-order your desired domain with that extension, then you must select an EAP phase when you want to submit that domain for registration.
