.juegos is a gTLD that was proposed in ICANN's New gTLD Program. Uniregistry's application succeeded and was delegated to the Root Zone on 15 May 2014, making the company the Registry Operator for the string.[1]


Registry Operator

  1. Uniregistry, Corp, a new registry company established by domain investor Frank Schilling, which invested $60 million on 54 gTLD applications. [2][3]

Previous Applicant

  1. Donuts (Goose Gardens, LLC) - This applicant submitted a Public Interest Commitment, which can be downloaded here.

Private Deal

In February 2014, it was reported that Uniregistry and Donuts reached a private deal which resolved a number of New gTLD string contention sets involving only the two companies. Although the deal coincided with a round of Private Auctions conducted by Applicant Auction on February 18th, neither companies immediately commented on the nature of the deal and Applicant Auction did not disclose the participants of its recent auctions. If the companies had participated in a private auction, it would mark the first private auctions that Uniregistry participated in, after the company initially questioned the legality of private auctions in the New gTLD Program.[4]

In the private deal, Donuts became the sole applicant for .furniture, .auction, and .gratis, while Uniregistry won .juegos and .audio.[4]

Contract Signed

On 20 March 2014 Uniregistry received a Registry Agreement signed by ICANN for .juegos after passing all the required processes needed to become a Registry Operator for the string.[5]

Delegation and Availability

.juegos was delegated to the Root Zone of the DNS on 15 May, 2014, completing the successful application for the string.[1]
