'''.dating''' is a proposed [[TLD]] in [[ICANN]]'s [[New gTLD Program]]. The applicant is [[Donuts]] (Pine Fest, LLC).<ref>[ Reveal Day 13 June 2012 – New gTLD Applied-For Strings]</ref> The proposed application succeeded and was delegated to the [[Root Zone]] on 27 January 2014.<ref name="delegation">[ Delegated Strings,] Retrieved 29 Jan 2014</ref>
Saudi Arabia's Communications and Information Technology Commission (CITC) filed an objection against the TLD, on the grounds that it might also be used by pornographic sites.<ref>[ Saudi Arabia opposes .gay internet domain name,]</ref>The objection was filed in the Applicant Comment Forum and was taking into consideration by the Initial Evaluation panels when reviewing this application.
==Application Details==
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 "more harm than benefit by denying domain access to legitimate registrants." They intend to control abuse through "extensive user and rights protections."<ref>[ ApplicationDetails,]Retrieved 12 Dec 2012</ref>
==Contract Signed==
On December 5, 2013 [[Donuts]] received a [[Registry Agreement]] signed by [[ICANN]] for .dating after passing all the required processes needed to become a [[Registry Operator]] for the string.<ref>[ Donuts Portfolio Swells as ICANN Signs 31 New gTLD Contracts, DomainIncite] Retrieved 06 Dec 2013</ref>
==Delegation and Availability==
.dating was delegated to the [[Root Zone]] of the [[DNS]] on January 27, 2014, completing the successful application for the string.<ref name="delegation"></ref>
