New gTLD growth in February 2016
A gTLD use case in the london streets
The new gTLD – Top Level Domains – continue to grow larger and larger, in terms of volume, in these early days of 2016.
They also start to become more popular and more visible. The “lumiere” festival in london was using a .online website :
Volume growth for gTLD
The growth is quite steady, faster than old gTLD who slowed down after a strong time in end 2015. The graph of compared growth is pretty clear :
The acceleration of the volume growth in Nov 2015 is not as strong any more.
Largest TLD are .xyz, .top and .wang
The leaders are fueling that growth, with always the same at the top of the charts – xyz is the largest TLD by far, with over 2 million domains. That level was reached on Feb 10, 2016, in a very large growth of approx 40’000 domains names per day, which is at the present rythm what all the dot brands would grow in 20 years. This growth of Top Level Domain Names is quite impressive, has maybe something to do with the fact that a .xyz domain is presently for sales below 1€ at godaddy. . club is also enjoying a very large growth, and also is on sales at godaddy.
