New domain name registration volumes: all new gTLD reports were updated by Jean Guillon.

Did you check the plural version of your extension?

I came out to wonder how many plural versions of a singular new gTLD do exist. Actually, the list was not so difficult to create and I first thought that there would be very few. In fact, there are 25 of them and this raises questions:
  1. Is there a plural version of the domain name extension I just registered my domain name with?
  2. Should I consider registering my domain name in the plural version of it extension?
  3. What if...I don't do it.
Of course, my answer to question 2 is "yes" and if you want my answer to question 3, "squatting" is the first word that comes to my mind. I build a weekly new gTLD report entitled "Singular and Plural new gTLDs". The report lists all extensions' domain name registration volumes week after week.
