Here are the 1st day domain name registration results from last week’s 5 New gTLD launches:
Rightside had 2 New gTLDs out of EAP and into General Availability on the 28th of January 2015: .Band and .RIP. According to NameStat.org .Band has 776 domains after its first day and .RIP has 348 domains.
Radix launched .Space on the 28th of January 2015 and got 1,784 registered domains.
Google registry launched another one of its New gTLDs on the 28th of January 2015: .How. .How has 250 domains after its first day.
Also on the 28th of January a geo New gTLD launched: .ryukyu. This is how .Ryukyu is descibed on the official extension website: “Ryukyu is the place names of old Okinawa. .ryukyu is a GeoTLD for Okinawa prefecture. The purpose of .ryukyu is to promote Okinawa and spread to the world Okinawa brand.” .Ryukyu has 143 domains today.
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.)
