I checked exactly 115 domain names from the 5 Donuts New gTLDs that entered Early Access Program Program (EAP) pricing this week: .house, .coffee, .international, .florist and .solar.
From these 115 domains I am only after 1 (one) domain name. That is because all domains are either taken in sunrise (some with bogus trademarks), either are in the collision list, reserved by Donuts, blocked by DPML or are marked as premium with renewals ranging from $50 up to $500 per year.
Here are the 115 domains :
2 were registered in sunrise (wedding.florist, london.florist: Wedding.florist is using this bogus trademark from that company that bought 30+ Swiss trademarks for “pens”)
3 domains have a DPML block (e.g. office.house)
74 are either on the collision list or reserved by Donuts
35 are Premium with renewals ranging from $50 up to $500 per year. (irish.coffee, turkish.coffee, instant.coffee, Cappuccino.coffee all have renewals at about $500/year – power.solar, energy.solar, black.coffee, tree.house, business.international are reserved)
1 domain has regular pricing
As it turns out I will only be going after that 1 domain that has regular pricing.
Also in previous weeks I had at least 10-15 domains that I would leave for the general availability day. This week I have none.
The way this goes I think that this is how it is going to be with the next Donuts New gTLDs. The deals from the first few New gTLDs are long gone. All god domains are either reserved or have premium renewals that range from $50 up to thousands of dollars per year.
So Donuts has officially drove the domainers out of the New gTLD game. Let’s see what happens with the New gTLDs from other companies that are coming up in the next few months.
