Have you ever had to run outside in the middle of the night in your skivvies hollering, "Hey you kids! Get off my property!" as no-good meddling teenagers (and their Great Dane) flee the immediate vicinity? Well, then this week's category of domains released as part of Donuts's name collision release program might just be right for you.

This is the category dealing with all things relating to Property. Not just any kind of property, but Real Property (as if other kinds of property aren't real). That means private property like .farm, .house, .land, and .lease but also some common property like .camp, .city, .community, and .town. These domains have been kept pristine by ICANN's name collision prohibition, now think of them as being auctioned off like park land for you to develop.

The rollout schedule for this category will be the following:
    Day 1 (July 29, 2015 at 16:00 UTC): +$12,667

    Day 2 (July 30, 2015 at 16:00 UTC): +$4,222
    Day 3 (July 31, 2015 at 16:00 UTC): +$1,778
    Day 4 (August 1, 2015 at 16:00 UTC): +$945
    Days 5-7 (August 2-4, 2015 at 16:00 UTC): +$189

We're still waiting for the "Potent Potables" category.

Put a fence around a domain in one of these TLDs and make it your Property?:


Seven new gTLDs are entering General Availability today, Wednesday 19 February, 2014:

Here are the prices at A rates:

We're sending pre-registrations to the Registry. As usual, pre-registrations that cannot be completed will be refunded.

The pace is accelerating for new generic top-level domain (gTLD) releases. In case you haven't heard, the Donuts registry is offering 7 new extensions for sunrise right now:

Another batch of 7 is queued up for December 10, at 8am Pacific time:

Add to this list the gTLDs .menu and شبكة (aka .shabaka, or "web" in Arabic), depending on whether we get the data we need from the registry in time. 


December 11 is a good day for gTLDs too, with the Sunrise of .tattoo and .sexy. Should be interesting, but where is .nice? 


We are working on getting .kiwi ready for  December 16, and will notify you here about others as the information becomes available. Stay tuned!
