ICANN has published the latest official data from Verisign (NASDAQ: VRSN) about the .com namespace. This registrar-by-registrar report covers December 2019.

Wix landed in the top ten list for new .com registrations for the second month in a row.

As usual, Chinese registrars were in flux. Note that Xin Net fell off the list. After posting 72,991 new .com registrations the prior month, it had only 18,212 in December!

Here’s how registrars did in terms of new .com registrations:

1. GoDaddy.com* (NYSE: GDDY) 904,896 (946,270 in November)
2. Tucows** (NASDAQ:TCX) 165,119 (182,250)
3. Namecheap Inc. 162,806 (163,141)
4. Chengdu West/West.cn 156,630
5. Alibaba (HiChina) 155,992 (163,419)

9. GMO 66,082 (86,969)
10. Wix (NASDAQ: WIX) 64,869 (62,712)

Here’s the leaderboard of the top registrars in terms of total .com registrations under management as of the end of December 2019.
