New gTLD Weekly Review: .London, .Global, .Yokohama, .Loans, .Life, .Guide, .Church

newgtldThis week 6 New gTLDs enter General Availability, another 4 New gTLDs enter the EAP General Availability and 1 New gTLD enters a landrush phase.

.London, one of the biggest geo New gTLDs, enters general availability on Tuesday the 9th of September. .London already has 24,351 domain name registrations from it’s priority program.

.Global and .Yokohama also enter general availability on the 9th of September. .Global seems to be in the wrong end of the dot and .yokohama will be another solid geo new gTLD. The City of Yokohama, is the second largest city in Japan by population after Tokyo.

Donuts enters EAP General Availability for the following 4 New gTLDs on Wednesday, September 10rd 2014: .Loans, .Life, .Guide and .Church.

I expect all good .loans domains to be expensive premiums or reserved. You can register a non-premium .loans new gtld at $130 at Go Daddy. And competition from .loan is coming soon. The other 3 New gTLDs are much better to invest in. Especially .guide that generic. I also like .life but is more limited than .guide. .Church is nice too but I reseller value may be too low.

4 Donuts New gTLDs will be out of the EAP pricing and into the real (reg fee) general availability on Wednesday: .Digital, .Finance, .Insure, Accountants.

Only 1 New gTLD enters landrush phase this week:
.Okinawa on the 8th of September


You can register any Donuts domain name using the Donuts EAP that is available in registrars that sell Donuts gTLDs. EAP prices start at about $12,500 and are lowered within the course of the week until they reach the regular registration cost after the 7 day period.

Go Daddy’s early access prices are $12,539.99 for day one, $3,164.99 for day two, $1,239.99 for day three, $689.99 for day four and $189.99 for days five to seven. After day seven the regular registration cost applies.

The Donuts Early Access Program (EAP) is designed for registrants who want to secure relevant, memorable domain names the instant they’re available. The EAP takes the place of a traditional landrush for all Donuts gTLDs.

Interested individuals, organizations, businesses and others can register names on a first-come, first-served, non-restricted basis. In addition, this program allows brand owners the opportunity to obtain non-trademark domain names to help promote and protect brands, register authoritative terms for their industries, or simply get an interesting and usable Internet identity.

Early access registrations are available for the first seven days of a gTLD’s general availability.  EAP commences today at 16:00 UTC (11:00 a.m. US Eastern Standard Time) and ends in a week from now, also at 16:00 UTC. Each week a series of Donuts gTLD launches, EAP will begin at 16:00 UTC on Wednesday and close at 16:00 UTC the following Wednesday.

More are on the way. In fact, Donuts will open several gTLDs each week for most of 2014.

As a reminder, each gTLD’s general availability is preceded by a 60 day process known as Sunrise, when trademark holders are able to secure their trademarked terms.  Once this phase is completed, the gTLD is open for anyone to register names.  Registrations are available only through accredited domain name registrars — you can find a complete and regularly updated list of registrars that sell Donuts gTLDs here.
