The real (no EAP) general availability started yesterday for 7 new gTLDs offered by Donuts: .camera .equipment .estate .gallery .graphics .lighting .photography
.photography is leading the 7 New gTLDs with 10475 domain name registrations including sunrise and EAP registrations. Distant second is .gallery with a total of 3,303 domain name registrations.
Last week .guru had 12435 registrations at the same time.
Despite .photography just entered general availability it already ranks 2nd, behind .guru, among the 14 first Donus New gTLDs.
About 20,000 new gTLD domain names were registered in the first few hours of general availability yesterday.
This is the day that the pre-registrations kicked in and domains were available on a first-come, first-served basis.
