About Donuts

Donuts is an Internet domain name registry founded in 2011 by industry pioneers, and backed by institutional capital.

Having raised more than $100M in its A financing round, and even more capital in its B round, we have applied at ICANN for 307 top-level-domain names (sometimes called TLDs or extensions) in 2012.

Similar to Donuts biggest competitor, Verisign – a registry with a few old TLDs such as .com and .net, Donuts is also a registry but has more than 100 new TLDs such as .services, .expert, and .email.  Our TLDs are specific to a large number of verticals, such as general business, sports, hobbies and leisure, personal expression, occupations, shopping and e-commerce, travel and regional, community and religion, and many other interests and categories.  Donuts, being a “registry”, is required by ICANN to only sell names via “registrars” such as Godaddy, 1&1.com, eNom, Tucows and many others, so we cannot sell names directly to the public.  If you want to purchase an excellent, meaningful, memorable name, please visit one of these fine registrars.

We offer variety and choice in internet naming.  We are nuts about domain names.  We are Donuts.
