Stats Blog

We've now officially released DomainNameStats.com, a new domain statistics site covering all TLD's that exist on the internet today.

NameStat.org started tracking new gTLDs in 2013 and will continue to offer in-depth analysis and metrics for new gTLD growth as well as being a central resource of ancillary information such as ownership and market share, pricing and aftermarket sales.

DomainNameStats.com tracks all TLDs in the Root zone including Legacy TLDs such as .COM and .NET and also Country TLD's (otherwise known as ccTLDs) such as .UK, .CA and .SE. Whilst some data will be common between the two sites, it is not possible to replicate the full level of detail for all TLDs that we've provided on NameStat.org. In particular Country TLD's are sometimes reluctant to publish statistics on registration volumes and trends and rarely publish zonefiles (the list of domains under each top level domain).

So on the face of it persuading individual Country TLD registries to part with (any of) their data may seem like a daunting task. However we believe this is a task very much worth pursuing. The goal is a unified public resource mapping all TLDs, all namespaces. Not just their official use but also additional uses gained through language (.ME, .LY, .IN) or acronyms (.IO, .AI, .FM, .AM), alternatives to .COM (.CO) and even emojis (.WS). On the way we'll extol the virtues of each TLD, why do people choose one over another, where are the best places to buy, who can register, prominent sites, prominent usage.

The site is currently in beta but we have already reached 300 million domains tracked and more than 60 datapoints per TLD and growing. With more on the way, it's going to be an interesting ride.

Watch this space!

 

Background

As of the 3rd March 2018, there are 1,544 active Top Level Domains on the internet. Of these 1,218 are new gTLDs (those released in 2013 and the following years). There are 17 Legacy TLDs including .COM/.NET/.ORG and lesser known namespaces such as .TEL, .PRO and .MUSEUM. A further 305 are Country TLD's such as .UK, .FR and .DE including two for geographical areas (.ASIA and .CAT). There are also three US government TLDs (.GOV, .MIL & .EDU) and one Infrastructure TLD, .ARPA.

 

Here are 947 one character new TLD domains that were once registered but are no longer in the zone. They are now either fully deleted or reserved by the registry. Typical registration and renewal prices for one character new TLDs vary from $72.60 for q.careers through to $55,000 for a.xyz. The 'check' buttons redirect through an affiliate link to Uniregistry where you can check the status of the domain. 

Back in June 2015 we did a similar post on one character deleted domains and some of those domains (like q.careers for example) are still available at the same prices.

If you find a domain that is in this list but registered (or you get it yourself) please leave a note in the comments so we can keep the list accurate.

Much has been written about Google's 'restructuring' to Alphabet, it's catchy new holding company site abc.xyz and on the positive repercussions (hopefully not short-lived) for the new gTLD program. But what of the immediate effect on .XYZ registrations, has there been a bounce?

Inspired by a post by Raymond Hackney at TLDInvestors which found 260 .COM/.NET names regged after Google's surprise announcement, I thought it would be interesting to see how many similar variations were registered across all new gTLDs.
