New gTLDs Reach 300,000 Registrations With .Berlin Getting 31,956 On It’s First Day

Yesterday .Berlin, the first geographic/city New gTLD string went into general availability and it got 31,956 registrations in it’s first day.

.Menu started on Monday and it got 1649 registrations in it’s first day.

According to ntldstats.com there are now 294,066 New gTLD domain name registrations in the zone files. But zone files don’t include domain names without nameservers. So if we add about 2% (that is the number of domains I estimate to be without nameservers) to that then we reach at about 300,000 New gTLD domain name registrations in under 2 months since the new gtld program started.

.Guru still leads the way with 45,269 registrations but with the rate that .berlin is going it will not be for long. There are now 7 New gTLDs with 10,000 registrations or more.

Tomorrow 6 more New gTLDs from Donuts go into proper general availability: .academy, .center, .company, .computer, .management and .systems.

  1. Have you ever been in Berlin? It is 3+M city. No way 30+k domain would be registered in 1st day. Only dumb-head would believe in that. There is something wrong in such report, or the counter is not what it should be and it includes domain name that are blocked/reserved/not-allowed, etc.

  2. .berlin is free for germans for a year? that would definitely effect numbers. i have also read that the terms state berlin domains must be put to use in 12 months or less.

  3. These numbers mean nothing to me until year 2 – this will reflect the true numbers.

  4. but why we are speaking about the .berlin so long (maybe because of blogs title)
    it was finished after 10:00:01 oclock yesterday !! and now, we are all happy surprised
    as james and zournas said .. lets see in 1 or better 5 years

    its no secret anymore and everybody think it atm. the GEOs

    lets go forward in GEO. amazing and interessting for me is this:
    https://www.united-domains.de/neue-top-level-domain/koeln-domain-registrieren/
    25k preregs just on UD for köln ! köln will start in 4 or 6 moth. how is this possible

    btw .. what do think about .london

  5. someone who know

    You forgot mention the new UNO domain, who i think will be huge

  6. someone who know

    I think you miss the point. you need to think big.
    most of the new gTLD, in optimic scenario, will be under 50,000 domains.some of them will reach 100,000 domains.
    I think that when people will understand what is UNO and the potential, it will be above 1M
    in a few months.
    I think that it is going to be the .COM for the spanish language. realy!!.

  7. someone who know

    Time wil tell
