Minds + Machines Gets 1,700 New Domains Across 6 New gTLDs While .Vegas Gets 3,000

newgtldHere are the domain name registration results from yesterday’s 8 New gTLD launches:

Afilias’s .Organic entered general availability and has 27 domains after day 1. It only added 1 domain since the day before. But .organic is a restricted New gTLD so it might take a bit longer for registrations to go live. Nevertheless I don’t expect a spectacular increase.

.Vegas also launched yesterday and has 3902 domains today. It added about 3000 new domains from the day before.

Minds + Machines launched .cooking, .country, .fishing, .horse, .rodeo and .vodka. These 6 extensions were the first strings offered exclusively by Minds + Machines and entered general availability on Monday. Here are the domain name registration numbers after day 1:

After Day 1 Previous Day Added
.cooking 439 61 378
.country 221 39 182
.fishing 387 38 349
.horse 325 40 285
.rodeo 107 31 76
.vodka 468 38 430
1947 247 1700

The “previous day” column includes sunrise domain names as well as any domains registered by the registry.

(I am always comparing the same first hours from their 1st day for all New gTLDs. The hours between General Availability and the first zone files update.)
