Donuts or Donuts Inc. is a start-up company that was created to apply and run new generic top-level domains (gTLDs) as made possible by ICANN's gTLD expansion program; it was co-founded by Paul Stahura, Jonathon Nevett, Richard Tindal, and Daniel Schindler. In April 2011, the company was in stealth mode and raising capital; based on the company's filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), Donuts raised $1 million equity financing.<ref>Former Demand Media exec Paul Stahura emerges at stealthy Donuts Inc., Geekwire.com.

The second round of funding was earmarked specifically for gTLD auctions to resolve its 158 contention sets.<ref>Donuts Gets Another 100million Funding, DomainIncite.com Published & Retrieved April 9 2013</ref> The company's headquarters is located in Bellevue, Washington.
