It’s in: the latest list of which registrars are top in .Com

The words "top 10 domain registrars" in purple and yellow text

ICANN has published the latest official data from Verisign (NASDAQ: VRSN) about the .com namespace. This registrar-by-registrar report covers July 2020.

For the second month in a row, Chinese domain name registrar Xin Net has hemorrhaged domains. I suspect some Chinese domain investors are letting their subpar domains go.

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

1. GoDaddy.com* (NYSE: GDDY) 980,072 (1,019,809 in June)
2. Namecheap Inc. 281,870 (276,463)
3. Tucows** (NASDAQ:TCX) 248,333 (261,936)
4. Endurance+ (NASDAQ: EIGI) 200,407 (198,274)
5. Alibaba (HiChina) 193,608 (160,422)
6. Google Inc. (NASDAQ: GOOGL) 169,345 (159,637)
7. Wix (NASDAQ: WIX) 109,552 (118,685)
8. United Internet^ 71,225 (78,001)
9. Dynadot 61,679
9. NameSilo 57,944 (58,967)

Here’s the leaderboard of the top registrars in terms of total .com registrations under management as of the end of July 2020.

1. GoDaddy* 54,055,970 (53,921,563 in June)
2. Tucows** 12,926,699 (12,911,196)
3. Endurance+ 7,123,142 (7,054,410)
4. Web.com++ 7,035,136 (7,036,119)
5. Namecheap 6,177,045 (6,001,568)
6. Alibaba 5,923,722 (5,877,037)
7. United Internet^ 5,552,903 (5,550,769)
8. Google 3,753,882 (3,653,632)
9. Xin Net Technology Corporation 2,793,597 (3,087,400)
10. GMO 2,249,611 (2,270,872)

Many domain companies have multiple accreditations and I’ve tried to capture the largest ones. See the notes below.

* Includes GoDaddy, Wild West Domains, Uniregistry and 123 Reg
** Includes Tucows, Enom, Ascio and EPAG
+ Includes PDR, Domain.com, FastDomain and Bigrock. There are other Endurance registrars, but these are the biggest.

    I am wondering if the Afternic Fast Transfer program works with all these remaining top 10 registrars? If they have not yet reached out to some of these registrars, we are all missing some possible sales.
