The weekly "cities" new gTLD report by Jean Guillon

Are new domain names for cities purchased? This weekly publication reports on cities new domain name registration volumes.

The cities of Barcelona and Istanbul are the two new cities to see their domain name registration volume increase. For a reason I misunderstand, the two TLDs for Moscow keep diving in the red deeper and deeper.
