Associate Mark Donahey has put together a great spreadsheet which allows users to view the recent applications for .ANYTHING top-level domains (gTLDs) in a variety of ways. See below for a link to download the spreadsheet document.

In addition to the general full list, it includes additional tabs that include only the following subsets:

  • Most Common Applicant: Sorts the list by the amount of applications filed by each applicant;
  • Most Common Strings: List of gTLD strings with at least 2 separate applications;
  • Unique Strings: you get the idea;
  • Community;
  • Geographic;
  • Non-Standard Script: Applications for strings using other character sets;
  • Notable Collisions: hand-picked, subjective, non-exhaustive list of conflicts over applications for the same string involving noteworthy brands or applicants; and
  • Notable Applications: subjective and non-exhaustive list of applications for gTLDs that seemed noteworthy for any number of reasons.
