How to read these reports

Check for colors:
  1. In blue: noticeable domain name registrations increase;
  2. In red: they decrease from one week/month to the other;
  3. In bold when it is highly noticeable;
  4. In pink: when the string is related to the content but not exactly;
  5. "(s/p)" means that there is a singular AND a plural version of the TLD;
  6. "withdrawn" means that the application to the ICANN new gTLD program was withdrawn and therefore, won't be updated;
  7. "coming" means that the ICANN application validation process is not yet finished but numbers will start to appear at some point.
  8. When there is a question mark such as "coming?", it means that there could be a problem in the validation process, or that the ICANN cannot tell when the TLD will see the day;
  9. "new" means that the TLD was just added and numbers will start to be updated on the month after;
  10. "will not proceed" means that objections to the TLD blocked it from being delegated (and then launched);
  11. "®" stands for "Trademark" (specification 13 granted) or "Restricted TLD".
