Happy new year! 2017 promises to be an interesting year in the domain name business.
I am going to start the new year with two polls. The first deals with the new gTLD domain name extensions and the second deals with .com domain names.
Poll one: By January 1, 2018, will there be more or less registered new gTLD domain names? According to nTLDStats.com, there are slightly more than 27.5 million registered new gTLD domain names.
Poll two: By January 1, 2018, will there be more or less registered .com domain names? According to RegistrarStats.com, there are just under 126.2 million registered .com domain names.
You are welcome to discuss in the comment section about why you think there will be more or less registered domain names.
