New gTLD yearly snapshots since 2018

Since 2016, we've collected all Registries domain name registration volumes and have decided to offer these yearly reports for a fee.

Each yearly report contains a monthly snapshot (12 lists) of all domain names created for each new gTLD.

The yearly report is delivered as an Excel sheet containing 12 sheets (one per month), each listing all available new domain name extensions and the number of domain names created (or lost) during each month.

Our offer is available here.

New gTLD Reports from December were updated

New gTLD reports are monthly captures of domain name registration volumes according to specific groups, businesses or industries.

On the last day of each month, we capture these registration numbers so our readers can see if these increase or decrease.


This method is a good way to see if these domain names meet adoption by consumers or not.

20 reports are updated:
  1. New gTLDs related to POLITICS (.gop - .vote - .republican - .democrat - etc...);
