The top 10 trending keywords registered in .COM and .NET domain names during the month of January 2018 were published by Verisign, the .com and .net registry.
There are no common keywords in the 2 lists.
You can find the list from last month here.
This doesn’t mean that crypto domains are out of fashion. If there were 10,000 “crypto” domains registered last month and 10,000 registered this month then “crypto” would not appear in the lists below.
My experience shows that only 2 or 3 new thousand domain registrations are enough to bring a keyword into the top 10.
Top 10 Keyword Registration Trends for .COM and .NET in January 2018:
*Note: Each list was developed by examining keyword registration growth relative to the preceding month, such that those keywords with the highest percentage of registration growth are being reported on. This method is used to eliminate commonly registered keywords, such as “online” and “shop,” to provide a true look at monthly trends. In order to be included, a keyword must experience a minimum threshold in registration growth month over month. Qualifying keywords with the highest volume of registrations are then ranked and included in the list.
