.equipment is an active gTLD that was proposed in ICANN's New gTLD Program. The Registry is Donuts (Corn Station, LLC) and the company was the sole applicant for the string.[1] The proposed application succeeded and was delegated to the Root Zone on 6 November, 2013.[2]

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 "cause more harm than benefit by denying domain access to legitimate registrants." They intend to control abuse through "extensive user and rights protections."[3]

Contract Signed

On 27 August 2013, Donuts received a Registry Agreement signed by ICANN for .equipment after passing the Initial Evaluation.[4]

Delegation and Availability

.equipment was delegated to the Root Zone of the DNS on November 6, 2013, completing the successful application for the string. Donuts had 9 string delegated to the root on that day, including .camera, .clothing, .lighting, .singles, .voyage, .guru, .holdings and .ventures.[2]

Sunrise

The Registry announced that their Sunrise Period for the string would begin 03 December 2013 and end on 31 January 2014.[5]
