BELLEVUE, Wash., June 4, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Donuts Inc., the world's largest registry for new generic top-level domains (gTLDs), continues its expansion of the Internet's global addressing system in June by making 16 new gTLDs available to the general public. In addition to the 16 gTLDs slated for general availability, Donuts will open another 16 gTLDs for "Sunrise" availability to trademark holders.
Donuts, now eclipsing the six-month mark of its new gTLD general availability schedule, will continue rolling out new gTLDs on a weekly basis throughout the second half of 2014. By the end of this month, Donuts will have launched a total of 127 new gTLDs, and anticipates launching approximately 200 in total by the end of the program. Registrations are available from accredited registrars worldwide.
"Demand for new gTLDs in the first five months of 2014 has outstripped our most aggressive benchmarks," Donuts co-founder and CEO Paul Stahura said. "The growing adoption of new gTLDs by the global community demonstrates users' intense hunger for relevant, memorable names that fulfill the original purpose for which the domain name system was created."
