.NYC launches this week and Donuts’ well runs dry.
It’s time for the weekly overview of new top level domain names coming out this week.
It will be brief, as just five are on the docket as best I can tell. But one of them is certainly big.
.NYC will launch to great fanfare on Wednesday. This is a big test for geographic top level domain names, especially ones with restrictive registration policies. More on that later.
Also on Wednesday, Donuts releases .city at regular prices.
It doesn’t launch a domain in Early Access this week. This is the first week since Donuts started rolling out TLDs in January that it hasn’t had a new one to release.
Rightside launches .lawyer and .attorney on Wednesday. I’d imagine if you buy one, you should probably buy the other, too.
