New gTLDs: behind the scene

This week is a little special as we are establishing in the middle east for a short period of time...and no: we are not on holidays. During the next 4 days, publishing will take a little longer but we will ensure that new gTLD reports are updated everyday.

Behind the scene
We have selected this video because it shows "real life" in the story of a new domain name extension. It this video, it is clearly about strategy and numbers: different new gTLD business models are explained and an idea of amounts invested to make such an extension like ".club" successful are given. True story.

Noticeable last week:
  1. .XYZ new gTLD: the Registry jumps from 2,888,839 domain names registered to 5,578,591. This is a lot but...there is a story behind.
  2. .GDN new gTLD: this new Registry, which has more an more Registrars to take an accreditation, jumps from 17,806 domain names registered to 29,259. This is a good result too.
  3. .PUB new gTLD: jumps from 53,132 to 63,817 domain names registered.
