Donuts is a domain name registry created by industry veterans with a goal to give the Internet a delectable variety of new gTLD (generic top-level domain) extensions.
With its extensive portfolio of more than 300 domain extensions, Donuts is responsible for significantly expanding domain name availability. Their new domain options help feed the online world's need for relevant, targeted, easy to remember, personalized, and specific domain extensions.
For information about Donuts registration process, see Registering Donuts Domain Names.
The launch for Donuts domains is divided into three pre-registration phases: Trademark Holder (Sunrise), Priority Pre-Registration (Early Access) and General Availability. Each phase has specific application requirements. For more information, see Registering Donuts Domain Names.
