Donuts is shutting down HotKeys next week

Donuts is shuttering domain parking company HotKeys next week, the company announced in an email to clients today. The new top level domain company acquired HotKeys when it bought Rightside last year.

Michael Blend founded HotKeys in 2001 and sold it (along with a portfolio of great domain names) to DemandMedia, which later spun out Rightside.
