Donuts releases 5 domains in GA and 3 in early access and Radix preps its “big” one.
It feels like 2014 again this week, as Donuts releases a slew of new top level domain names to the marketplace.
On Wednesday it will release .dog, .theater, .taxi, .hockey and .run at regular pricing as Early Access concludes.
It will also begin the early access for .movie, .coupons and .soccer.
It’s also a big week for Radix as it begins a seven day early access period for .online. The company is targeting 25,000 domains registered by Wednesday of next week.
.Online was originally a three company partnership between Radix, NameCheap and Tucows. The partnership split earlier this year, with Radix taking the reigns.
NameCheap and Tucows agreed to heavily market the domain, with Tucows getting $1.5 million for marketing it.
I suspect Radix’s confidence stems from marketing activities these registrars will undertake a launch.
