New gTLD Report – June 2016

June has been an exciting month in terms of numbers. There was one TLD that owned 95% of the percentage share! No prizes for guessing which extension that was. Take a look at the report below with the highlights:

1) .XYZ count soars with 2¢ promo: .XYZ is a very popular TLD – the highest selling new gTLD (according to ntld stats) and latest registration numbers were exceedingly high thanks to you. Since the .XYZ domain completed 2 years in the industry, the registry decided to sell the domain at an unbelievable price of 2¢ for 2 days (June 1st & 2nd) and the resulting numbers were astounding! For the rest of the month, .XYZ continued at a low price of 22¢ contributing to 95% of the domain registration numbers for June. We hope you were able to grab the extension at this amazing price.

2). TOP continues to perform well: The .TOP domain has been consistent in its performance, maintaining its position in the Top 3. The numbers can be attributed to the 49¢ promo on the extension since the beginning of this year.

3) .ONLINE moved up the ranking: .ONLINE which was in the 7th position in May has moved to the 3rd position. The promo price has dropped further from $5.99 to $2.99 in July so we expect to see the extension hold its position for the month of July as well.

4) Radix Anniversary Sale: As Radix celebrated their 2nd Anniversary this June, they had offers on 7 amazing TLDs – .WEBSITE, .SPACE, .HOST, .PRESS, .SITE, .TECH, and .ONLINE. The sale did exceedingly well: .SITE, .WEBSITE, .ONLINE, .HOST, .TECH and .SPACE have all made it to the list of Top TLDs for the month! That’s a whooping 6 TLDs to do so well from a single registry. .ONLINE, .WEBSITE, .SITE and .TECH have an even lower promo price in July so make sure you make the most of these popular extensions.

Throughout July, we also have brand new promos on .STUDIO, .VIDEO. Do check out the Independence Day special promos on .US, .CO and .BIZ as well here.
