Dollars to Donuts!


So I was chatting with some folks about pre-registration preparing for General Availability at Donuts. It seems pretty complicated but this is what I could put together. Maybe Donuts could confirm or clarify?

The new gTLDs that people want from Donuts are on a rating system.. The higher the rating, the more you pay…plus what you pay will be your renewal fee. Until that rating drops, that is your renewal fee.

Also, you cannot auto upload a list to be purchased automatically. The registrars have to hand enter the domains on opening day to buy them. There is also no bulk registration. Donuts doesn’t allow it.

Nobody knows the price of the domain unless you query it..

The rating of the domain name won’t be known until you query it on opening day.
