.Space tops in registrations with about 1,700 on first day.
When it comes to most registrations, .space appears to have topped the list of this week’s new top level domain name launches.
That doesn’t come as a big surprise since it’s the most generic (and lowest priced) domain of the lot. Here’s a run down of this week’s new TLD launches, starting with the most registrations…
1. According to namestat, .Space added 1,700 domain names in the zone yesterday, bringing its total to 1,784. Most domain name registrars were offering the domain names for about $10.
2. Rightside’s .band found some musicians, as 720 new domains were added to the zone. That brings the total to 776.
3. I’m a bit unclear on .我爱你, Chinese for “I Love You”. Its GA date was yesterday, but, perhaps due to time zones, it appears that the big bump came on Tuesday night’s zone files. It has 538 in the zone.
4. Apparently, not many people died yesterday. The .RIP domain name added just 270 registrations, bringing its total to 348. A number of brands picked up .RIP domains as a protective measure.
5. .Ryukyu, a geo domain name for Okinawa, had the slowest start of all domains released yesterday. It picked up just 84 names, bringing the total to 143.
