.Club Day 1 Domain Name Renewal Rate Was 74.98%

club-new-gtldThe .Club registry announced that its day 1 renewal rate was 74.98%.

.Club launched on May 7th, 2014. There were 26K .club domain names sold on the first day and a total of  32K in first 24 hours.

I guess the 24-hour renewal rate is a bit lower than 74.98%.

Donuts, the only other New gTLD registry to release renewal rates, had an estimated 70% renewal rate on General Availability domains. But that was across many strings.

.Club has started auctioning 10,000 expired or expiring domain names at Snapnames.

  1. Sound similar to donuts early reports or maybe a bit worse. I would think they’ll be heading for a rate around 60% or so.

    • It could be… But I just realized that this rate could mean nothing at all.
      There was someone on day 1 that registered 30% of the domains: 7,572 .club domain names.
      I just checked 25 domains and he has dropped 13 of them.
      I believe he dropped all 494 of the *****club.club domains he had.
      I estimate his renewal rate at lower than 40%. Maybe even a lot lower.

  2. Yes, 74.98 on its way down to zero. Just my opinion and not nearly that of the management or its advertisers.
