Anything to do with photography, icons, paintings or pictures can come together under the .pictures domain. A .pictures domain may be the home base of a photographer, the graphic designer or the artist who shows his portfolio online. Also the stockphoto supplier or a painter can show their online shop while using the .pictures extension.
Registering a .pictures domain has no restrictions: everyone can register his own domain and immediately use it.
The .pictures domain is one of the domains managed by the registry Donuts. In the first application round for the new gTLDs in 2012, Donuts applied for more than 300 extensions. With extensions such as .theater, .gallery, .band and .construction - all available for registration without restrictions - they will serve all the possible target groups for the Donuts portfolio. With such a widerange ofextensions,the Internetwill focuson the target group onextension levelrather thanonlyat domain level.
