.London steals the show.
6 new top level domain names launched this week. A simple way to describe the results: .London. everything else is just details.
.London added 12,421 to the zone on the first partial day and another 695 on the second day to bring its total to 35,663.
After that, .digital had the second best launch in terms of registrations. It added 2,159 domains to reach 2,648.
.Digital is a bit more generic than Donuts’ other domain name launches this week: .accountants, .finance and .insure. It was also cheaper.
I examined the .digital zone file and didn’t find any one registrant responsible for the bulk of registrations. So just a decent launch for .digital.
.Accountants added 260 domains to hit 371, .finance added 783 to reach 1,057 and .insure added 567 to reach 788.
Accountants will soon have a lot of options for domain names, including .accountant and .cpa.
.Global, which launched Tuesday, now has 1,816 domains in the zone after adding another 179 yesterday. That seems pretty good for a domain priced above $50 with a limited use case. For how many companies would .global make sense, and don’t these companies already have an existing domain name?
