Stealth venture files trademark application indicating new domain name venture.

This past weekend we learned that four domain name industry vets, including eNom founder Paul Stahura, were forming a new company called Donuts Inc. The company raised about a million dollars of investment. Although the company is in stealth mode, the players involved make me think the four are starting a venture related to new top level domain names.

A trademark application with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office confirms that the company will be going after the domain name market — but doesn’t clarify that it will be for new top level domain names.

Donuts Inc. Executive Vice President Jonathon Nevett filed a trademark application on May 1 for “Donuts” for “Domain name registration services; Registration of domain names for identification of users on a global computer network”.

My money is still on new top level domain names.
