3 .BRANDs were terminated but...

Some Brands
Some dotBrand new gTLD owners have not found what to do with their Top-Level Domains. For this reason - and also because it cost them $25,000 a year in ICANN taxes, they are withdrawing their application. The .BRAND TLD concerned are:

  1. .ADAC
  2. .LOFT (yes, this one is a dotBrand)
  3. .SES

It it happens that some applications can be withdrawned, the total number of domain names created keeps increasing month after month (check down the Google sheet).

31 more ".brand" domains created in October 2022

According to the stats published since the beginning of Round 1 of the ICANN new gTLD program and whatever crap is written on Internet, personnalized domain name extensions (ending in ".brand" instead of ".com") continue to generate interest.

When checking the monthly statistics (down this table), not one single month reduces the number of .brand domain names created.

DotBrand Trademarks such as .ALLY - .AMAZON - .HYUNDAI - .LEXUS - .GENTING - .BAUHAUS - .JIO - .ABC - .TOYOTA - .LANXESS - .BRIDGESTONE - .GMO - .SEW - .TUI - .PHILIPS - .SNCF - .LIDL - .IFM - .CANON - .SKY - .SBI and many more contribute to this new trend.

More than 1,000 domains created

Three Trademarks have created more than 1.000 domain names for their own use: .DVAG - .AUDI and .LECLERC.

24 other Trademarks created betwenn 100 and 999 domains for their own use.
