Customers have registered 960,000 second level domain names under Donuts’ domain names.Donuts, the largest registry for new top level domain names, hopes to sell its millionth domain name registration this month.
The company’s latest newsletter pegs its total registrations at 960,000 across 147 top level domains. That’s an average of about 6,500 per top level domain.
It will need to add 40,000 more domains without the aid of weekly launches. In previous months, the company released three or more domain names each week. In October, it will launch just three domains in total.
Still, small gains on the 147 domains currently available add up in a hurry.
For example, here are the net adds in the zone file yesterday for some of its domains (numbers from DomainIncite Pro):
- .Solutions 86
- .Guru 68
- .Today 68
- .Email 66
- .Center 46
- .Expert 46
- .Photography 44
Most of its domains added fewer, but then you have to multiply by over 100.
Donuts’ numbers are also notable because of relatively high prices for domains and it hasn’t given away free domains like other registries have.
