Donuts names gTLD sunrise dates

Trade mark owners can start to register their rights in seven of the new gTLDs on November 26

Donuts, one of the biggest applicants in the new gTLD program, said the sunrise period for its first seven names will run from November 26 to January 24 next year.

The first gTLDs it is opening are .bike, .clothing, .guru, .holdings, .plumbing, .singles and .ventures.

There will be no land-rush period so the domains will all open to general availability on January 29. Anyone can apply for domains in these gTLDs through an accredited registrar. Donuts has announced another 19 registrars with which it has signed agreements.

To be eligible for the sunrise period, trade mark owners need to have registered their rights in the Trademark Clearinghouse. This also entitles them to other protection measures, such as trade mark claims.

Donuts has said it will provide additional IP protection measures, which it calls the Domain Protected Marks List.
