Who can register these domains?
Anyone can register domain names on a first-come, first-served basis.
We’ll attempt to auto-renew your domain on its expiration date. We’ll park domain names after the first failed billing attempt. If the domain isn’t renewed within 40 days following expiration, we cancel it and remove it from your account.
Donuts domain names are refundable if cancelled and processed within five days of registration (120 hours).
For Auto-Renewals: For one-year renewals, domain names are refundable if canceled within 45 days after expiration (not necessarily within 45 days after renewal). For multiple years, refundable if canceled within five days of the renewal date. The ICANN fee is only refundable within 5 days of renewing a domain name.
For Manual Renewals: Domain names are refundable if canceled within five days of manual renewal.
Two nameservers are required for domains to resolve, and a maximum of 13 nameservers is allowed. DNSSEC, IPv4 and IPv6 are supported.
