Demand Media applies for 26 domain names — and some of them are very interesting.

Publicly traded Demand Media, parent company of domain registrar eNom, has applied for 26 top level domain names through (what appears to be) a subsidiary called United TLD Holdco Ltd.

The company also has a deal to share in up to 107 top level domains applied for by Donuts, Inc.

Demand Media’s list is interesting. Of course, it didn’t want to conflict with Donuts, Inc. on any applications. The only one I see close would be .fishing (Donuts has applied for .fish).

The company went after the armed forces market with .airforce, .army, and .navy. I suppose you could add .ninja to that list. Although these aren’t trademarked, it will be interesting if any governments object to these.

Here’s the full list:

AIRFORCE
ARMY

GIVES

IMMOBILIEN
KAUFEN
MAP
