Paul Stahura’s Donuts Inc to apply for 10 TLDs

eNom founder’s company will apply for ten top level domains.

Update 6/5/12: Or maybe 307…

eNom founder Paul Stahura plans to apply for ten new top level domain names through his new company Donuts Inc., Bloomberg reports.

Donuts raised $1 million in outside capital beginning in April of 2011. Based on the directors involved with the company, it looks like TL Ventures and Austin Ventures are backers.

It was fairly clear to me from the SEC filing that the company was formed to apply for new top level domains. This was confirmed with a trademark filing.

Stahura also testified on capitol hill in favor of top level domain expansion while he still worked for Demand Media, which bought eNom from him.

The application period for new top level domains begins Thursday.
