.sexy and 10 more gTLDs now in the root

Kevin Murphy, November 14, 2013, 16:26:15 (UTC), Domain Registries

The third batch of new gTLDs have gone live.

Uniregistry’s .sexy and .tattoo are currently in the DNS root zone, the first two of its portfolio to become active.

The TLDs .bike, .construction, .contractors, .estate, .gallery, .graphics, .land, .plumbing, and .technology from Donuts have also gone live today.

Donuts already had 10 new gTLDs in the root from the first two batches.

There are now 24 live new gTLDs.

The first second-level domains to become available will be nic.tld in each, per the ICANN contract they’ve all signed.

You’ll notice that they’re all ASCII strings, despite the fact that IDNs get priority treatment in the new gTLD program.

    The Empirer’s New GTLD’s!

    Kinda sad in a way, though.

    All are ill-fated and will soon be .forgotten.
