New gTLD 1st Day Registrations: .Rocks 5191, .WTF 977, .Fail 638, .Limited 1102, .Financial 763, .Actor 571, .Reise 891

Here are the domain name registration results of this week’s 7 New gTLD launches:

Yesterday 6th of August 4 Donuts New gTLDs went out of the EAP pricing and into the real (reg fee) general availability: .WTF, .Fail, .Limited and .Financial..

The first day, or rather first hours, registration numbers were pretty bad for all 4 Donuts New gTLDS. The best one, .Limited, has a total of 1,102 domain registrations today. .Financial has 763 domains today. .Fail had 638 and .WTF had 977 domains.

These numbers include the Sunrise (trademark) domain registrations which are not that high anyway. .Financial had 180 sunrise registrations while .Limited had just 98.

Rightside Registry launched 2 New gTLDs this week. .Actor and .Rocks enter general availability on Wednesday, August 6th 2014 and had 571 and 5,191 domain registrations respectively.

Finally also on Wednesday .Reise (travel in German) entered general availability and has had 891 domains today.

(I am always comparing the same first hours for all New gTLDs. The hours between General Availability and the first zone files update.)
