.shopping is a proposed TLD in ICANN's New gTLD Program.


  1. Donuts (Sea Tigers, LLC) This applicant submitted a Public Interest Commitment, which can be downloaded here.
  2. Uniregistry, Corp.[1]

String Confusion Objection

.shop applicant Commercial Connect submitted an objection to Donuts' application for .shopping on the grounds that the two strings are confusingly similar and that Internet users might mistake the strings for one another. An ICDR panelist, Robert Nau, ruled in favor of Commercial Connect, which may force [[Donuts]' application into a contention set along with all of the applicants for .shop. However, no objection was filed against Uniregistry for their application of .shopping.[2]
