|Parked Domain %:||47.84 %|
|Delegation:||17 December 2013|
|General Availability:||05 March 2014|
.photos is an active gTLD that was proposed in ICANN's New gTLD Program. Donuts (Sea Corner, LLC) is the Registry for the TLD and was its sole applicant. The proposed application succeeded and was delegated to the Root Zone on 17 December, 2013.
Many of Donuts' applications, including this one, seem to have been applied for using the same boiler-plate application in which the TLD is defined as a means of providing greater expression on the Internet and will be an open TLD without pre-registration policies. It notes its plans to adhere with all registration policies required by ICANN and its intent to have remediation and takedown policies clearly defined to fit within these requirements. Pre-registration verification will not be used and this as defined as causing "cause more harm than benefit by denying domain access to legitimate registrants." They intend to control abuse through "extensive user and rights protections."
