Donuts sells millionth domain name

Donuts today sold its millionth domain name, according to a company press release.

The name, according to Donuts, was heavenly.coffee.

I’m not saying heavenly.coffee wasn’t the one millionth name, but I reckon that if the one millionth name had been get-free-viagra.guru, I’d still be looking at a press release talking about heavenly.coffee this afternoon.

Donuts is obviously the first company to hit this target. It owns the largest portfolio of new gTLDs by a considerable margin.

The company has 150 delegated gTLDs, 140 of which are in general availability.

    Ironic that the 1 millionth Donuts domain name appears to be a form of cybersquatting. My immediate reaction was “Chock Full O’ Nuts,” which has been “The Heavenly Coffee” since 1953 (and has two trademark registrations containing “heavenly coffee”).. The registrant is a company in Hoboken, New Jersey, which appears to be iin some business related to waterproof roofing. Their interest in coffee (heavenly or not) remains obscure. I look forward to seeing what brews at this site.
