.XYZ clocks in at over 10,000 registrations and results from eight other new TLD launches.
I count nine new top level domain names that launched this week, as I previewed on Monday.
The top domain in terms of registrations was .xyz, although I’m not sure what the actual number of true registrations is. Technically there are 67,504 in the zone file…but most of these were given away free to Network Solutions customers who didn’t ask for them. Still, I believe .xyz has more than 10,000 “true” registrations.
.xyz launched on Monday. The other eight domains launched Wednesday. There was a problem with ICANN’s zone file system from Wednesday night through this morning, so there was no 6/5 zone file that would have covered the first day of these eight domains. Instead we have data after a day-and-change.
Here’s how they came out:
It’s worth noting all of these domains were priced 2-3x more than .xyz.
