.wtf is a generic top-level domain run by Donuts, a domain name registrar.[2] In June 2012, Ryan Singel of Wired predicted no one would ever apply the .wtf domain.[3] Since then, hundreds of thousands of applicants have received approval, and website domains such as TheInternet.wtf (a GIF-sharing site),[4] Looks.wtf (a site showcasing emoticons using combinations of text and emojis),[5] and KEEN.wtf (a Dutch-language topic discussion site),[6] are now available to the public.[7]

The Saudi Arabian government objected to this domain,[8] along with other new domain applications, in August 2012.[9]
