BELLEVUE, Wash., Aug. 5, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Donuts Inc., the world's largest registry for new generic top-level domains (gTLDs), continues to expand and diversify the Internet's global addressing system in August by making 16 new gTLDs available to the public. In addition to the 16 gTLDs slated for general availability, Donuts is scheduled to open another two for early registration by trademark holders.

Donuts, now entering the eighth month of its new gTLD general availability schedule, is approaching 800,000 end-user registrations and will continue rolling out new domains on a monthly basis throughout 2014. With this month's launches, Donuts will have 140 new gTLDs under management, with 111 in general availability as of today. Registrations are available from accredited registrars worldwide.

Donuts and a number of other providers of new domain names have sold more than 1.7 million new Internet identities since the program formally launched in general availability last January.

"With the two million total registration mark approaching for all new gTLDs, uptake for this program has been exceedingly strong overall.  Most of our gTLDs have met or beat expectations to date," Donuts co-founder and CEO Paul Stahura said. "Internet users are voting with their wallets and their clicks, acclimating to a world in which specific, relevant domains support the development of meaningful online identities."

The latest release includes relevant identities for those with affinities to health care (.HEALTHCARE, .CARE, .CLINIC, .SURGERY, .DENTAL), financial services (.TAX, .CASH, .FUND, .INVESTMENTS, .CLAIMS, .CREDIT, .CREDITCARD), and various other areas of end-user interest.
