Donuts “Upwardly Adjusts” Price Of Ten gTLDs From October; Launches GA For .GROUP And .SALON

Donuts logoDonuts may have had 1,707,526 domain names registered across its 187 gTLDs available to the public, all of them paid for the company boasts, but that isn’t stopping it increasing the fee charged to registrars for a number of these gTLDs.

Donuts have announced they will “upwardly adjust” the standard wholesale price for ten of its gTLDs that they say will “more accurately reflect the value of registrations in these attractive gTLDs” from 1 October 2016. Donuts don’t make public their wholesale pricing and it only applies to new registrations.

The ten gTLDs whose price will increase are:

  • .CAMP
  • .DOG
  • .GLASS
  • .SHOES
  • .SOLAR
  • .TOYS.

The wholesale renewal pricing for existing registrations, registered before 1 October, 2016, will remain unchanged. Those registrations will continue to renew at the non-adjusted wholesale rate. Premium-priced names also are unaffected—only standard-priced names in the above-listed ten gTLDs are impacted. Subscribers to Donuts’ Domains Protected Marks List (DPML) are also unaffected. Those subscriptions will remain in place with no pricing change.

Donuts also launched two of its highly anticipated gTLDs – .Group and .Salon – for general availability last week.
