Entering the Donuts EAP for previously protected name collision domains are domains in a gTLD category that has a familiar ring to it : Fun & Generic. We had to wrack our brains to think of where we'd heard that one before but then we remembered! That's how we described ourselves on our online dating profile.

Anyway, here's the list of the extensions that qualify as Fun & Generic, many of which we may consider for the next revision of the dating profile.

The pricing for this is a little tricky, but here's how it goes:

Day 1 (6/24/2015 at 16:00 UTC) : +$12,667; approximately
Day 2 (6/25/2015 at 16:00 UTC) :   +$4,222; approximately
Day 3 (6/26/2015 at 16:00 UTC) :   +$1,778; approximately
Day 4 (6/27/2015 at 16:00 UTC) :      +$945; approximately
Days 5 through 7 (from 6/28 at 16:00 UTC until 6/30 at 16:00 UTC) : +189; approximately

Register a domain under one of these TLDs?:

.tld

New gTLDs .cool and .watch are entering the GoLive phase on Wednesday 7 May, at 8am PST (16h00 UTC), and will thus be open for registration by all.

If you're reading this before the GoLive time specified above, you can still take advantage of Landrush to secure your domain, provided you're willing to spend $139.68 for the first year's registration.

Once GoLive begins, the price for a new one-year registration of either of these extensions will be $32.49 at A rates.
