Sunrise registration results for .photos, .shoes…(Sedo;BMW;Oracle;Symantec;LinkedIn;Loreal;PizzaHut;Moodys))

I checked out the zone files from 4 new gTLDs that completed sunrise and went into general availability (Early Access Program (EAP)) on Wednesday and here are the results. Zone files only include domain names that have nameservers assigned. Registered domains with no nameservers don’t enter the zone files so these aren’t taken into account.

Number of sunrise domain name registrations:
.careers 282
.shoes 267
.recipes 76
.photos 75

.Photos and .recipes new gTLDs had very low sunrise registrations. .Careers and .shoes did ok. Comparatively .clothing had 561 registrations and .technology had 374 sunrise registrations. Trademark holders can still buy domains in sunrise prices for a few days more.
