Here are the 1st day domain name registration results from this week’s 6 New gTLD launches:
4 Donuts New gTLDs went out of EAP and entered the real (reg-fee) General Availability on the 10th of December: .Pizza, .Immo, .Network and .Business. Here are the results of their first day: .Pizza 1,272, .Immo 5,274, .Network 3,055 and .Business 3,292.
Rightside had 2 New gTLDs out of EAP and into General Availability on the 10th of December: .Auction and .Software. .Auction got 1,053 domain name registrations after its first day and .software got 3,068 domains.
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.)
.immo got 5k !! ok, this is really a surprise for me
Most of registrants are from Europe if that tells you something.
of course its immobilien (real estate) but ..
.. looks like I am still a noobish and missed that chance
Picked up a couple .pizza – someone paid a premium for Italian.Pizza so I missed out on that one but I got Neapolitan.Pizza and Specialty.Pizza at relatively decent prices.
