Sunrise registration results for .domains, .limo, .cab (Uber;Sedo;Gandi;Pairnic;MelbourneIT;ComLaude)

I checked out the zone files from 3 (.domains, .limo, .cab) 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:
.domains 187
.cab 32
.limo 19

.Limo and .cab new gTLDs had very low sunrise registrations. .Limo made a new all time low record with only

19 sunrise registrations. I don’t think it can get any worse that this. .Tattoo that had the fewer sunrise registrations until today had 24. .Domains did ok for the new gTLD standards. Comparatively the top 2 New gTLDs in sunrise registrations are .clothing with 561 registrations and .technology with 374 sunrise registrations. Trademark holders can still buy domains in sunrise prices for a few days more.

CalZone published an article called “Rolling Average For TLD Sunrises” that summarizes the New gTLD sunrise registrations so far based on my raw data. I suggest you take a look as it is very interesting.

Here are some notes on sunrise registrations:
