10 contention sets settled at last minute, including three by Amazon.com.
This month’s ICANN auctions of last resort for new to level domain names will settle just three contention sets, down from a schedule of 13 as of last month.
The only three still on the schedule are .spot, .salon and .realty.
Ten contention sets that were on the docket for resolution via ICANN auction this month have been settled:
- Amazon.com won .now, .deal and .save
- Donuts won .legal and .memorial
- Uniregistry won .auto
- Accent Media Limited won .tickets
- Top Level Design won .design
- Minds + Machines won .law
- dotRealEstate LLC won .realestate
Google remains a holdout for private contention set resolution. It will face off against Amazon and DotSpot LLC for .spot.
.Salon pits portfolio registry Donuts against L’oreal, Daysmart Software Inc, Aesthetics Practioners Advisory Network.
.Realty is a two way race between Donuts and Fegistry.
The auctions will take place October 22.
16 domain names are still on the list for November, but expect that number to shrink considerably by then.
