Domeniu .marketing is a proposed TLD in ICANN's New gTLD Program. The proposed application succeeded and was delegated to the Root Zone on 14 January, 2014.
Donuts (Fern Pass, LLC) - This applicant submitted a Public Interest Commitment, which can be downloaded here.
Uniregistry, Corp. - Uniregistry withdrew its application for .marketing right before the release of its Initial Evaluation results, thereby qualifying for a much larger reimbursement of its original application fee.
Tucows - WITHDRAWN in July 2013. It withdrew its applications weeks after Uniregistry, due to a buy-out by Donuts. Apparently, Tucows had cut its own deal to remove Uniregistry from the contention set; Uniregistry CEO, Frank Schilling, remarked that he would never have struck the deal with Tucows had he known that it would in turn cut its own deal with Donuts.
Deal between Tucows and Donuts
The Donuts buy-out of .marketing and .media from Tucows was the subject of a comedic video posted to OpenSRS's YouTube channel, featuring both Elliot Noss and Jonathon Nevett:
On 07 November 2013, Donuts received a Registry Agreement signed by ICANN for .marketing after passing all the required processes needed to become a Registry Operator for the string.
