Three more companies have informed ICANN that they wish to terminate their dot-brand top level domain names.

Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology (RMIT University) is one of the few educational institutions that applied for top level domains. The Melbourne research university appears to have created only one domain (other than nic.) on the .rmit TLD: next.rmit. Google search results show it was used as a place for students, faculty and other stakeholders to discuss the university’s future.

Swiftcover Insurance Services Limited told ICANN it wants to cancel .swiftcover. Google results only show nic.swift.

Dabur India Limited let ICANN know it wants out of .dabur. Dabur is a consumer goods company in India. Two domains other than .nic are indexed in Google. One is social.dabur, which forwards to a page on Dabur.com that aggregates its social media content. The other is doctor.dabur, which was used for a doctor consent form for the company’s “Ask Dabur” campaign.
