NtldStats.com is a website that offers a comprehensive list of statistics pertaining to the new gtlds. The company behind the website is Greensec based out of Germany.
We sat down with Stefan Meinecke to get some more info about the site.
1) What is GreenSec’s interest in the space ?
Stefan – GreenSec is a software consultant company that offers individual
solutions for companies around the world. This includes customised
hosting solutions for clients including the registration of domain names.
2) Does Greensec hold a large portfolio of domains, and if so how are
they broken down, existing gtlds, cctlds, new gtlds ?
Stefan – GreenSec is neither a domain name registrar nor an investor. The domains
we register for our customers are mostly gTLDs.
3) Are you getting your info strictly by going through the zone files?
Stefan – No. Even though the zone files are the primary source, they are not
covering the statistics in realtime and miss all the domain names that
does not have a valid nameserver set. Apart from that I am using some
other ways to get the most accurate data in realtime.
Stefan – At least once a day.
Stefan – All times are UTC+0.
Stefan – No.
Stefan – Yes, but with some restrictions. A banner is no problem, but I already
received offers to place links to other websites in order to push the
ranking of these websites, which is not going to happen.
Stefan – I am focusing on usability right now. There will be new features and
suggestions can always be made, though.
Stefan – It will remain free. Period.
Thank you for your time Stefan and good luck with the site.
