Another Hat Trick for Donuts

According to the New gTLD Micro-site, Donuts has prevailed in three strings that were scheduled for the 25 March 2015 ICANN Auction.  In hockey terms, this is a hat trick and it’s not their first.

  1. .HOCKEY – prevailed over Famous Four Media via Covered Donuts LLC.  This is in the known partnership with Rightside (United TLD)
  2. .RUN – prevailed over Famous Four Media via Covered Donuts LLC.  This is in the known partnership with Rightside (United TLD)
  3. .TAXI – prevailed over Famous Four Media & Taxi Pay GMBH via Dozen Donuts LLC.

There is no point in posting their applications because all three gTLDs will be open as all their previously delegated strings.  The only question is which of the two from Covered Donuts may be transferred to United TLD?  To date, 18 strings have been transferred to United TLD:

  1. auction
  2. attorney
  3. band
  4. consulting
  5. degree
  6. dentist
  7. forsale

  11. market
  12. mortgage
  13. reviews
  14. rocks
  15. sale
