Launched by the Donuts registry, this .CONTACT extension is interesting, particularly for the contact pages of your websites.

This extension is also part of the TrueName program created by the Donuts registry: when registering a domain name in .CONTACT, Donuts will also protect the typographical alternatives of your brand by blocking them, thus preventing some phishing attempts through the registration by a third party of a typographically similar name (ex.: loulou.contact vs l0ulou.contact).
