Here are the 1st day domain name registration results from last week’s 3 New gTLD launches:
One Donuts New gTLD was out of EAP and into real (reg-fee) General Availability on the 14th of January 2015: .World. According to NameStat.org .World had 5,081 domains after its first day of general availability.
Rightside had 2 New gTLDs out of EAP and into General Availability on the 14th of January 2015: .Degree and .Gives. .Degree got 160 domain name registrations after its first day and .gives got 160 domains also.
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.)
