Porkbun Hits 2 Million DUM

In a press release distributed this morning, Porkbun announced it hit the 2 million domain names under management milestone. The registrar was established in 2015, and it hit the 1 million mark seven years later in 2022. It is an impressive feat to have doubled that number in about two years.

Notably, Porkbun was founded as a retail registrar focused on selling non-.com domain names in extensions owned by its parent company, Top Level Design. The press release shared some of this background for those unfamiliar with Porkbun’s history:

Porkbun.com has been especially successful with new generic top-level domains (TLDs), such as .xyz and .live, while offering at-cost registrations for legacy options like .com and .org. Indeed, Porkbun was founded as a retailer for its parent company Top Level Design’s owned top-level domains. “Since the early stage of our company was focused on building a successful registry, which has since been acquired, Porkbun was able to grow naturally and without the same pressure. We didn’t set out to monetize Porkbun, but instead built the exact domain registrar that we wanted to use ourselves,” Ray added.

Congratulations to Porkbun on hitting this milestone.
