The registry is managed by [[Donuts]]. ==Current Applicant== # [[Donuts]] (June Station, LLC), one of 307 applied for by the company. This applicant submitted a [[PIC|Public Interest Commitment]], which can be downloaded [https://gtldresult.icann.org/application-result/applicationstatus/applicationdetails/706 here]. ===Private Auction=== A [[private auction]] resolved the contention set for this string in November 2014, with Donuts winning the rights for the gTLD.[http://domainincite.com/17622-battles-for-chat-style-tennis-bingo-and-sas-are-over Battles for .chat, .style, .tennis, .bingo, and .sas Are Over] ''By Kevin Murphy, DomainIncite.com''; Retrieved 13 Nov 2014 ==Former Applicants== # [[Famous Four Media]] (dot Wine Limited) # [[Afilias]] ===dotVinum=== gTLD professional, [[Jean Guillon]], was involved as a partner in a .wine and [[.vin]] project, [[dotVinum]], for a number of years. In February, 2012, he announced that the project would be coming to an end due to the fact that his partner had decided to pursue the extensions without him. It seems the unnamed partner was financing the project and was able to utilize Mr. Guillon's expertise without signing any type of binding contract, and thus was able to dump him from the project.[http://blog.guillon.com/2012/02/wine-applicant-fooled-by-partner-part-1.html Wine Applicant Fooled by Partner Part 1, Blog.Guillon.com] It seems that neither Mr. Guillon nor his partner applied for the extension, as all three applicants are large, portfolio applicants. ==Objections== Saudi Arabia's Communications and Information Technology Commission (CITC) filed an objection against the TLD, on the grounds that it could glamourise the consumption of alcohol.[http://www.bbc.com/news/technology-19259422 Saudi Arabia opposes .gay internet domain name, bbc.com] Although the [[GAC]] was unable to come to consensus on advice for the .wine and [[.vin]] strings, the European Union appears to be strongly against the delegation of the strings without protection of "Geographic Indicator" rights holders (such as Champagne, a wine-growing region) and wine producers. A letter to [[ICANN]] by European Commission VP Neelie Kroes made their position clear and stated that they believe ICANN should hold to the [[GAC]]'s advise on .wine and .vin given at ICANN 46 (Beijing), instead of the "no consensus" advise given in September 2013. The advise given at the Beijing meeting was to not move ahead with delegating the strings until GAC could come to a consensus.[http://domainincite.com/14478-europe-continues-to-object-to-wine-gtld Europe Continues to Object to Wine gTLD, Domain Incite] Retrieved 20 Sept 2013 ==References== {{reflist}} [[Category:TLD]] [[Category:Food & Drink New gTLDs|wine]]

Domain naming tips

3 basic tips when selecting the right domain name for your website.

Using a local top level domain

If it’s a local business and you want more customers, why not take a look at our domains which are given according to the location you require (.lt , .co.uk, .nyc, .berlin).

Avoid numbers

Avoid the usage of numbers because the people who hear about your website will be having a tough time figuring out if the website contains the number (2) or the number in words (two).

Avoid symbols

Hyphens and dashes will make things complicated and it doesn’t look professional.
