Donuts, the largest applicant for new gTLDs, made a blog post where it published some stats about it’s new gTLD applications so far. They also said that they have 100 Accredited registrars on board but I must say that there are some important (especially to domainers) registrars missing from this list such as: Fabulous, Moniker, Dynadot, SCHLUND+PARTNER (5th registrar in the world) and others.
Here are the stats:
50+ gTLDs live on the Internet.
100+ Signed Registry Agreements.
200+ gTLDs we think we’ll finally operate.
300+ gTLDs we applied for.
$5MM+ Total orders and commitments (to date) for Donuts services.
A few more stats:
19 Current number of Donuts employees, and the number that gathered at NamesCon last week for our first-ever company-wide meeting.
1/29/14 The day our first seven gTLDs will be open to general availability: .BIKE, .CLOTHING, .GURU, .HOLDINGS, .PLUMBING, .SINGLES, and .VENTURES.
5 Approximate number of Donuts gTLDs that will go live each week.
100 Accredited registrars (so far) that will make available registrations in Donuts gTLDs, representing over 90% of the registrant market.
