Starting Dot, the registry of .ski, .bio and .archi, launched the inaugural edition of the “PREMIUM TLD 50“, ranking of the world’s top 50 premium generic top-level Internet domains (gTLDs).
The Premium TLD 50 measures the performance of the largest premium generic suffixes by total number of domain names registered. It tracks the performance of gTLDs with an average retail fee over US$40.
Although this is an interesting tracker, the $40 mark seems a bit arbitrary.
The composition of the PREMIUM TLD 50 is reviewed quarterly, domain name registration totals are also updated quarterly. As of March 31, 2015, the PREMIUM TLD 50 shows a total of 337,186 domain names across the 50 best-selling premium gTLDs.
Here is the top 10:
