A New Jersey company is moving forward with plans to apply for .med and .give TLDs should the possibility of new TLD applications opening early next year become a reality.
Dot One, Inc. has filed three trademark applications over the last month for “Dot One”, “Dot Med”, and “Dot Give”.
The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) does not allow trademarks for top level domain names, but that has not stopped companies from applying.
In a news release, President & CEO, Anthony Ortiz, confirmed that the company plans to offer .one as a TLD.
“Dot One has developed proprietary technology that tracks internet users’ time spent online and creates donations to the charitable organizations of their choice. In turn, participating businesses on .ONE will have the opportunity to match those contributions and double the amount of giving potential. Users will also get a check every month from Dot One, Inc. for any extra time generated. Where else are you be able to surf the web, give and make money all in the same time? Nowhere! This novel approach will be revolutionary and Dot One will lead the way to micro-giving in a way that is long overdue.” As ICANN’s president, Rod Beckstrom would say “ONE World, ONE Internet, with everyONE connected.”
The company says it’s working with Minds + Machines for its registry services. Minds + Machines is noted as the most widely implemented registry software worldwide.
