Trending domain name keywords: Apex Legends, worlds, studios, dentistry

The top 10 trending keywords registered in .COM and .NET domain names during the month of February 2019 were published by Verisign, the .com and .net registry.

You can find the list from last month here.

My experience shows that 700 or 800 (or even less) domain registrations are enough to bring a keyword into the top 10.

There was on common keyword in the 2 lists: apex.

The “Apex Legends” domain name registrations are related to a free-to-play battle royale game developed by Respawn Entertainment and published by Electronic Arts. It was released for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on February 4, 2019, without any prior announcement or marketing. So that might explain the sudden increase in domain registrations. Of course there could be trademark (TM) problems with these domains.

*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.
