Boxes of uncontested Donuts running low.
The number of new top level domain names hitting the market each week is about to slow down.
Every week since the beginning of February, Donuts has released at least one top level domain name. Most weeks it has released at least three domains.
That’s about to come to an end.
According to the company’s launch calendar, just ten more domain names are currently scheduled to launch in Early Access the rest of this year. There will be stretches of weeks in which no Donuts domains hit the market.
Most of the domains Donuts has launched so far were uncontested applications. A handful of others were in contention sets resolved privately early on.
Donuts slower schedule might create an opportunity for other registry operators to get a bit more attention. Although honestly, even if just a few domains launch each week, it’s still hard to stand out.
