Jean Guillon retweeted the above tweet, which made me aware of NameStat.org this morning. I spent some time looking around the website, and it looks like they offer some interesting information about new gTLD domain name registrations.
On the home page, you can quickly reference the “Top 10” in categories including fastest growing gTLDs, best selling gTLDs, fastest growing IDNs, best selling IDNs, fastest growing .City TLD, and best selling .City TLD.
On the gTLD registrations tab, you can see the number of domain names registered in each of the new TLDs. At the moment, .Guru is the best selling new gTLD domain extension with 58,417 domain names registered. You can also see a chart of how many new gTLD domain names have been measured.
Although I don’t think growth and number of registrations for each new gTLD is all that important to anyone but the registry operators, I do find it interesting to follow along and see how the registries are doing.
There may be other websites that offer similar information, but NameStat.org caught my attention this morning, so I thought I would share it with you.
