Applicant Auction helped resolved 10 new gTLD contention sets last week, and the first results started trickling through today.

Of the six results we have so far, Uniregistry and Famous Four Media won two auctions, while Minds + Machines and Donuts both won one each.

According to our database, the following five contention sets have been closed:

  • .pizza — Donuts won after withdrawals from Asiamix Digital, Uniregistry and Minds + Machines.
  • .fashion — M+M won after withdrawals from Donuts, Uniregistry and Famous Four Media.
  • .diet — Uniregistry won after withdrawls from Donuts and Famous Four.
  • .cricket — Famous Four won after withdrawals from M+M and Donuts.
  • .help — Uniregistry won after withdrawals from Donuts and Dot Tech.
  • .racing — Famous Four won after withdrawals from Donuts and Uniregistry.

We’ve also seen a withdrawal from Momentous in the .rip competition, suggesting that that gTLD was also settled at auction last week. It’s not yet clear from the database who won.
