What will be the different registration phases or periods for these gTLDs?

When a new gTLD launches, there will be a Sunrise period (minimum of 30 days) for trademark holders to register their domain names. Post the Sunrise phase will be the Landrush period, where generic names (think names like car, money, sports) are made available at a premium price. After the Landrush phase concludes, general availability will begin, where any domain name not already taken up in the previous phases can be registered.
