.capital is a proposed TLD in ICANN's New gTLD Program. The applicant is Donuts (Delta Mill, LLC).[1]

The application was subject to a GAC Early Warning from the representative of Australia and GAC Chair, Heather Dryden; the warning system is noted as a strong recommendation on behalf of national governments to the ICANN Board that a given TLD application should be denied. It is noted in the warning that "The string (.capital) is a generic geographic term, and DeltaMill LLC does not appear to have proposed sufficient mecahnism to allow communities to protect their names and reputations from misuse at the second level.[2]
