Donuts, Inc., is one of the largest internet domain name registries, that is offering some of the new gTLDs. They have launched more than 100 new gTLDs since in late 2013. Some of those included .coffee, .clothing, .domains, .marketing, .bargains, .singles and .vacations. Donuts has scheduled to launch another 30+ gTLDs from May to June 2014. Those include such TLDs as .associates, .university, .clinic, . surgery, .dental, .church, .fitness, .cash and .tax.
In addition to the Trademark Clearinghouse Sunrise service, which entitles trademark holders to additional protection measures of their trademarked domains, Donuts provides additional IP protection measures called Domain Protected Marks List, which allows trademark holders to block their marks from being registered at the second level of all Donuts’ TLDs.
