.dating is a proposed TLD in ICANN's New gTLD Program. The applicant is Donuts (Pine Fest, LLC).[1] The proposed application succeeded and was delegated to the Root Zone on 27 January 2014.[2]

Objection

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.[3] 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."[4]

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.[5]

Delegation and Availability

.dating was delegated to the Root Zone of the DNS on January 27, 2014, completing the successful application for the string.[2]
