Here are the 1st day domain name registration results from last week’s 3 New gTLD launches:
Two geo New gTLDs from Belgium entered general availability this week: .brussels and .vlaanderen. According to NameStat.org .Brussels had 3,582 domains after its first day of general availability and .Vlaanderen had 3,553.
Rightside had 1 New gTLDs out of EAP and into General Availability on the 21th of January 2015: .ForSale. .ForSale got ??? domain name registrations after its first day.
It seems that Rightside has not approved any zone file access applications for anyone lately.
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.)
