.OOO entered general availability yesterday, 24th of October. According to ntldstats.com it has about 28,500 domains after its first day. But more than 28,000 are the so called .ooo premium reserved domains. I have no idea what the registry is calling premium .ooo domains but I would never have guessed that it could be so many!
The real registrations are 170 and that includes the 21 domains registered by the registry for its own use. That leaves 149 domains registered. You should also note that these 149 domains were not all registered on the 1st day of general availability but include sunrise domains as well. And there are some usual suspects that register their trademarks in all new gtlds. They get maybe 30 to 50 or even more no matter what the New gTLD is.
India, the home of the .ooo registry, has more than 10 ICANN accredited registrars but not one has registered a single .ooo domain name.
Here is one domain that someone registered: casin.ooo.
All I can say is n.ooo!
(Namestat.org: OOO day one, 31,463 added to zonefile – 31,290 reserved by the registry (787 2 letter), 173 registrations (approx))
(Ntldstats reports some unprocesssed domains: 2,446. If this is updated later then I will update this post accordingly.)
(The “New gTLD 1st Day Registrations” include sunrise domain names as well as any domains registered by the registry or any founder’s program. Any registry is allowed to register up to 100 domains for it’s own use and give out another 100 as part of the New gTLD founder’s program.)
(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.)
