In March 2019, the .BUZZ new gTLD hardly passed the 10,000 domain name registrations: its contract was signed in October 2013 and already passed the 10,000 registrations several times (and went below) but never went above 12,000 regs until August 2019.
When a Registry navigates around 10,000 records and adds 5000 from a month to the other, this is to be noticed,but 60,000...is highly noticed. Checking the outdated news from 2018 at the Registry website, nothing explains such an explosion of domain name registrations.
There is something here that I need to understand. Let's ask Bill Doshier.
Answer from Bill just received :
Thanks for noticing.
Briefly, a one month very successful test run in Asia. Very pleased here. Looking for additional opportunities. More to come.
Thank you Bill.
