New gTLDs : James is doing good...but not only

I like to refer in terms of volumes and recently noticed that the .BOND new gTLD has 544,071 domain names created in its root. Yes : more than 500,000 domain names ending in ".bond" instead of ".com" or any other extension. On the list of all new gTLDs from Round one of the ICANN new gTLD program, it stands in place 15 : not bad.

If I wonder who uses these domain names and what for, I also noticed that most other TLDs from this multiple registry seem to follow the same strategy : "volumes".

The interesting thing I see here is that Shortdot SA, which owns other Top-Level Domains (.CFD, .SBS, .ICU and .CYOU has all ot its TLDs listed in the TOP 30 of new gTLDs in volumes. At the moment I am reading the numbers, here is what I read :

  1. .CFD : 1,020,525 domain names.
  2. .SBS : 803,335
  3. .BOND : 554,071
  4. .ICU : 509,016
  5. .CYOU : 261,228
ShortDot SA has a total of 3,148,175 domain names created.

The .CEO new gTLD was acquired 6 months ago, let's check the numbers

Exactly 6 months ago, the .CEO Top-Level Domain was acquired by the .XYZ Registry and counted 3,768 domain names created. Let's check the new numbers and see if this Registry increased its number of domain names created, or not.

Since this publication was automated 6 months ago, I encourage my readers to check the numbers directly here on

Feed-back : not exactly 6 months but 2 weeks more (2 months and 2 weeks then), I returned to check the numbers in zonefile and that number is : 4,510 domain names so the total of domain names gained is 6 months (and 2 weeks) is 742.

March 2024 new gTLD Reports are online

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

On the last day of each month, we take a snapshot of these numbers so one can see if they increase or decrease for a month to the other.

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

22 new gTLD reports were just updated.

Jovenet Consulting is focusing on innovation for Round 2 of new gTLDs and if lots of projects are advertised at the moment, all about the upcoming and awaited "Web3 revolution" and crypto wallets connecting to a domain name, one deals with something completely different.

Project John Wolley offers a new way to search for local content, thanks to city names operated under one single domain name extension.

We are offering to read the full pitch about the project so one can understand about details and read between the lines. You can download the pitch here.
