Are they really coming now?

/ Domains @en

After years of many announcements and even more postponements now the rumours are not ignorable any longer. The sunrise phases of the first newgTLD could start in 2013. On top of the priority list of ICANN there are (besides several endings in IDN spelling):

  • PLAY
  • DOG
  • FOOD
  • RUHR
  • BUY
  • ARTE

donutsThe registry Donuts Inc. estimates that the 60 day sunrise for some of these Domains could be opened at the end of October 2013 – prices, terms and conditions remain unpublished, however.
