Here’s how registrars fared with .com in May.
Uniregistry recently announced that it crossed the million domain milestone. I’m not sure how Frank Schilling’s own domain names and North Sound new TLDs are accounted for, but the number is strong even if all of his domains in the total.
For the second month in a row, Uniregistry tops the transfer gains in Verisign’s monthly report.
Keep in mind that these reports are published after a three month delay. So this post is about May’s results. They certainly suggest that Uniregistry is becoming a popular registrar from a transfer-in perspective. Net adds are still lacking, though, with just 1,280 new .com registrations in May. This makes sense if the company is mostly attracting domain name investors.
Let’s start by reviewing which registrars added the most new .com domain name registrations:
1. GoDaddy* 900,737
2. eNom** 217,152
3. HiChina 157,192
4. PublicDomainRegistry 115,932
5. Tucows 106,574
