The new gTLD .Guru just topped 40,000 registrations making it the most successful new gTLD to launch.
.Photography is the second most popular new gTLD with almost 25,000 registrations.
.Tattoo is the least registered new extension, fully launched to date, still under 1,000 registrations.
I had a chance to chat with Dan Schindler of Donuts the registry that owns .Guru as well as almost every new gTLD launched to date who told me a couple of weeks ago based on Donuts internal projections, .Guru was not in their top half of strings they were launching in terms of expected registrations.
So Donuts has o be very happy with the numbers to date for .Guru.
The total number of new gTLD registrations now less than 5,000 away from 200,000.
Meantime the total of .Com registrations continue to grow and is now over 126,000,000 which as you can see from the above chart continues to grow even during the launch of the new gTLD’s.
The existing new gTLD registration which seems to be negatively effected by the new gTLD’s is .Info as you can see from this chart:
