Hi folks,

The Registry Identity Digital (merge between Donuts and Afilias) released for general availability more than 230 000 domain names reserved on more than 200 different extensions (mostly 1,2 or 3 characters), yesterday.

I analyzed the released domains and here are my high-level findings:
  • I counted 271 extensions ranging from .ac to .zone, with .ac, .io, and .sh being the only ccTLDs
  • For .pro a total of 130k domains were released and thus the majority of the whole release. On the next places: .info (45k domains), .run (7k) .mobi (5k) and .global (2k).
  • About 50% of the released domains are premium domains (with premium reg & renewel fees, e.g. .bet 2880 / year). The remainder are said to be standard pricing.
  • For 90% of the extensions, the same roundabout 100 domains were released for each. These seem to be a mix of
    • trademarks (e.g. 'Arpa', 'KellyLogistics', as in kellylogistics.actor),
    • typical second-level combinations ('io', 'mil', 'int', 'cn', 'co', 'gov', 'edu', 'tel' 'org', as in org.actor),
    • these 7 random longer keywords (e.g. 'oneself', 'pseudonym', 'proclaim', 'aero', 'kingdom', 'eponym', 'blink' as in blink.actor)
    • some phrase-like keywords (e.g. 'getyour', 'Iam', 'register', as in register.actor)
  • For some extensions (e.g. .academy), a list of first name + last name combinations were released.
  • For some extensions (e.g. .engineering), a list of company names were released.
  • For some extensions (e.g. .camera), a longer keyword list was released (including 'auction', 'new', 'now', 'loan', 'fly')
  • For some extensions (e.g. .wine), industry-specific keywords were released (e.g. chardonnay.wine)
  • For some extensions (e.g. .dog), all LL combination were released. (e.g. ad.dog)
  • For some extensions (e.g. .bet), all NL and LN combinations were released (e.g. a1.bet)
  • For some extensions (e.g. .football), geo-domains were released (e.g. Hamburg.football)
  • For some extensions (e.g. .fund), NN combinations were released (e.g. 10.fund)
  • For some extensions (e.g. .global) LLL combinations were released (e.g. aax.global)
  • For .info, they released some German-keywords (e.g. schach.info which is German for 'chess')
  • For .mobi, they released all 1-3 letter / number combination (e.g. 1.mobi)
  • For .pro, they released all 1-3 letter / number / dash combinations (e.g. 0-0.pro)
  • For .pro they released a large number of dashed domains (e.g. d-i-g-i-t-a-l-s-e-c-u-r-i-t-y.pro)
  • For .pro & .info they released a huge number of nonsense domains (e.g. cwryveliihuuxrrwyiohk.pro) - Does anyone know why they were held back?
In case anyone wants to do their own analyis; Netim created a csv which can be downloaded here: https://netim.com/files/premium/identity-digital-reserved-domain-release-july-2023.csv

From my perspective, you did not miss anything, if you just hear about this now. Unless you are really into investing in premium domains with high registration fees...
I pre-ordered 14 domains (13x .info and 1x .io) and got 9 of them. I hope these 9 domains will be worth the time I invested in scanning 230 000 domains :glasses:

Let me know if you have any detail questions.

Best

Till

I got an email about this release (I think DynaDot sent it out) and browsed through some of the names. Didn't find much that I was interested in because like you said, most of the premiums had pretty high renewals. Can't believe you went through all 200k+ of them. Hope those nine do well for you and congrats on getting them!! (y)

I thought io blocks and cancels swear words and adult names

Probably spent more time on writing this post than on analyzing the data. Excel filters & formulas FTW! I had hoped that there were some hidden gems to be discovered but quickly realized that most very not very valuable or just plain expensive. Thanks for your words!

I registered one of the listed .io names which went through without a problem. Maybe nic.io changed their policies and as a result Identitiy Digital released the .io swear words?!
