eNom and Uniregistry do well on transfers, GoDaddy and eNom lead in new registrations.
ICANN just published the most recent .com transactions report, reflecting registrar results for .com from January.
There were no major outliers from January in terms of .com transfers, but Google Domains made an appearance on the top gainers list. 9,770 domains were transferred to Google’s new domain name registrar. I wonder if these were from consumers transferring their domains or if Google transferred some of its own domain names to its new registrar.
Here are the top five net gainers, comparing successful transfers in to transfers out:
1. eNom +15,832
2. Uniregistry +15,421
3. Google +9,723
4. Name.com +6,993 (owned by same company as eNom)
5. NameSilo +6,469
(I’ve ignored registrars that don’t appear to serve the general public)
Here are the registrars that had the most net transfers out:
1. GoDaddy -13,491
2. Melbourne IT -12,694
3. Network Solutions -10,574
4. Moniker -8,475
5. Tucows -8,204
In terms of new registrations, GoDaddy led the pack as usual:
1. GoDaddy 902,049
2. eNom 184,312
3. PublicDomainRegistry 109,016
4. Tucows 107,318
5. HiChina 105,737
