.diy is a proposed new generic top level domain name with ICANN's New gTLD Program.

Current Applicants

  1. Google (Charleston Road Registry Inc.)
  2. Lifestyle Domain Holdings, Inc.[1]


An official Legal Rights Objection was filed by Scripps Networks, LLC against Google.[2] It seems that Scripps Networks is behind the other competitive bid for .diy.

A Legal Rights Objection, as defined by the ICANN approved mediator, WIPO, is when, "third parties may file a formal objection to an application on several grounds, including, for trademark owners and Intergovernmental Organizations (IGOs) [..] When such an objection is filed, an independent panel (comprised of one or three experts) will determine whether the applicant’s potential use of the applied-for gTLD would be likely to infringe [..] the objector’s existing trademark, or IGO name or acronym."[3]
