New gTLD reports

New domain name registration volumes

New gTLD reports are monthly captures of domain name registration volumes according to specific groups, businesses or industries. On the last day of each month, we capture these registration numbers so our readers can see if these increase or decrease. This method is a good way to see if these domain names meet adoption by consumers or not.

We update 20 categories

How to read these reports

  • In blue: when the number of domain names registered has increased significantly;
  • In red: when the number of domain names registered has decreased significantly;
  • In each report, we added the "®" sign next to .BRAND new gTLD applications (specification 13 granted (or not)/ TLDs operated by a specific brand);
  • "(s/p)" means that the extension also exists in its plural version;
  • "coming" means that the extension should see the day at some point;
  • "Round 2" means that one application (or more) is expected to be submitted in the next round of the ICANN new gTLD program.
