.diamonds is an active gTLD that was proposed in ICANN's New gTLD Program. The Registry and sole applicant is Donuts (John Edge, LLC).[1] The proposed application succeeded and was delegated to the Root Zone on 19 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 Sept 23, 2013 Donuts received a Registry Agreement signed by ICANN for .diamonds after passing the Initial Evaluation.[4]

Delegation and Availability

.diamonds was delegated to the Root Zone of the DNS on November 19, 2013, completing the successful application for the string.[2]


The Registry announced that their Sunrise Period for the string would begin 17 December 2013 and end on 14 February 2014.[5]
