.investments is a gTLD that was proposed in ICANN's New gTLD Program. The applicant and now Registry Operator is Donuts (Holly Glen, LLC).[1] Their application succeeded and was delegated to the Root Zone on 23 April 2014.[2]

Background

The application was issued 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 as it stands. Applicants are encouraged to work with objecting GAC members.[3] The warning states that the TLD refers to a regulated market but that the applicant has not provided for adequate measures to protect from consumer harm.[4]

Contract Signed

On 20 March 2014 Donuts received a Registry Agreement signed by ICANN for .investments after passing all the required processes needed to become a Registry Operator for the string.[5]

Delegation and Availability

.investments was delegated to the Root Zone of the DNS on 23 April, 2014, completing the successful application for the string.[2]
