Registry for hundreds of top level domains returns to its original building.
Top level domain name registry Donuts has returned to its former home in Bellevue, Washington.
The company had been located down the street in Kirkland, Washington, where Rightside was located. Donuts acquired Rightside in 2017 and left its original office in Bellevue to use the Rightside office. Now the company has returned to its former building in Bellevue.
For a couple of years, Donuts, Tucows and GoDaddy all had offices within steps of each other of the shores of Lake Washington in Kirkland. Tucows’ office is in the same building that Donuts occupied after Tucows acquired the Enom business from Rightside. GoDaddy’s is right down the street.
GoDaddy recently hired Aman Bhutani, who currently resides in Seattle, as its new CEO. It will be interesting to see if it expands its operations in the Seattle area.
Of course, the biggest headquarters change announcement in the area is that Domain Name Wire is now based in the region.
