.gallery is a proposed TLD in ICANN's New gTLD Program. The applicant is Donuts (Sugar House, LLC).[1] The proposed application succeeded and was delegated to the Root Zone on 14 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 13 September 2013, Donuts received a Registry Agreement signed by ICANN for .gallery after passing the Initial Evaluation.[4]

Delegation and Availability

.gallery was delegated to the Root Zone of the DNS on November 14, 2013, completing the successful application for the string.[2]
