New gTLD Registrations Pass 9 Million Mark

As you can see from the tweet above posted by Akram Atallah, there are now more than 9 million new gTLD domain names that have been registered. There are nearly 800 new gTLD domain name strings that have been delegated.

According to, as of this morning, there are 9,027,478 registered domain names. The five new gTLD extensions that have the most registered domain names are .XYZ, .Top, .Wang, .网址 (xn--ses554g), and .Science.

Perhaps interestingly, the domain registrar that has the highest number of registrations is a Chinese registrar called Chengdu West Dimension Digital Technology Co., Ltd. with 1,069,312 new gTLD domain names registered. GoDaddy is the second largest new gTLD registrar with 953,984 domain names registered. Alpnames Limited, GMO Internet Inc., and Uniregistrar Corp (Uniregistry Corp.) round out the top 5.

It was just in early October that there were 8 million new gTLD domain names registered, and the 7 million mark was hit in mid-August. I am not entirely sure if there was an impetus for the more rapid growth. It was either sale prices or more interesting new gTLD domain names coming on the market. I don’t follow this too closely, so I won’t speculate on that.
