.site that was launched by Radix a few months ago saw an enormous surge in registrations on Wednesday morning. The TLD received over 140,000 new domain name registrations in a single day.
The large jump in registrations can be attributed to a high demand for Pinyin Acronyms in .site from the Chinese market. .site has been amongst the most sought after TLDs in the Chinese market primarily due to the short length of the TLD.
The .site zone now stands at 301,000 domains in total and the TLD has climbed up to the 8th largest nTLD leaving behind TLDs like .bid, .link and .click.
