Car company Stellantis has informed ICANN that it’s terminating contracts to run five top level domains.

The automaker notified ICANN last month that it wishes to cancel .abarth, .alfaromeo, .fiat, .maserati, and .lancia. ICANN opened the comment period on January 25 after determining that it should not re-delegate these dot-brand domain names.

The company is not canceling its .chrysler and .ferrari top level domains.

When it originally applied for the domains, it was part of Fiat Chrysler group.

Google hasn’t indexed any second level domains or websites for the company’s other top level domains, so it doesn’t appear to be an active user of dot-brand extensions.
