1and1.com new gTLD pre-registrations just topped the 3.5 million mark and for the first time the domain name registrar is showing the top 30 new gTLD’s with the most pre-registrations.
1and1.com had only been showing the top 20 new gTLD based on pre-registration volume.
Here is the top 30 according to 1and1.com in alphabetical order.
Interestingly only one Geographic new gTLD made the top 30 list, .NYC. Also only four of the new gTLD’s of the top 30 have only one applicant, .Club and .Eat and .Guide and of course .Nyc
Brad Mugford says
What happened to .XYZ? A week ago they were supposedly top 5, now they are not even top 30. I don’t even see the extension listed at all on their site any more.
Top 30 ‘in alphabetical order? That makes no sense. By placing them in alphabetical order, you have vitiated the efficacy of the purported revelation.
FYI, alphabetical order is one metric, and number of registrations is another. In the latter, .shop, or .home could come ahead of .art, for instance, and that’s a pertinent information. At best, it is lazy to do it alphabetically. Top 30 list should be in order of number of preregistrations.

1and1.com gives out the top 5 in order with the number of pre-registrations as they have always done.
The top 30 seems to be in no particular order since the first 5 listed are not the same 5 listed in the top 5
Look at the 1and1.com site before bitching at me.
Mark Thompson says
The top 30 is dependant on your geography. I see London in the top 30 NYC does not show in my version.

Was thinking the same thing

We have seen .COM registration growth slowing in recent years. It will be interesting to see the effect of the new TLDs on .COM registrations in 2014. I suppose the 1and1.com advertising on TV will draw fresh faces into the industry but we’ll see.
1and1.com will be hoping to successfully grab a good chunk of those pre-registrations – good luck to all involved.
>>vitiated the efficacy of the purported revelation<<
What a neat turn of phrase!
