DomainNameStats.com has been officially released in Beta. DomainNameStats.com is a new domain statistics site covering all TLD’s that exist on the internet today.
DomainNameStats.com and NameStat.org are operated by Name Metrics Ltd, a global domain name data analytics company, headquartered near Manchester in the UK. The company’s CEO is Andy Brier.
NameStat.org started tracking new gTLDs in 2013 and will continue to offer analysis and metrics for new gTLD growth as well as being a central resource of ancillary information such as ownership and market share, pricing and aftermarket sales.
DomainNameStats.com tracks all TLDs in the Root zone including Legacy TLDs such as .COM and .NET and also Country TLD’s (otherwise known as ccTLDs) such as .UK, .CA and .SE.
“Whilst some data will be common between the two sites, it is not possible to replicate the full level of detail for all TLDs that we’ve provided on NameStat.org. In particular Country TLD’s are sometimes reluctant to publish statistics on registration volumes and trends and rarely publish zonefiles (the list of domains under each top level domain).”
“So on the face of it persuading individual Country TLD registries to part with (any of) their data may seem like a daunting task. However we believe this is a task very much worth pursuing. The goal is a unified public resource mapping all TLDs, all namespaces. Not just their official use but also additional uses gained through language (.ME, .LY, .IN) or acronyms (.IO, .AI, .FM, .AM), alternatives to .COM (.CO) and even emojis (.WS). On the way we’ll extol the virtues of each TLD, why do people choose one over another, where are the best places to buy, who can register, prominent sites, prominent usage.”
The site is currently in beta (v0.1.3 – 8th March 2018) but it has already reached 300 million domains tracked and more than 60 datapoints per TLD and growing, with more on the way.
