.XYZ has become the 8th most registered Top Level Domain according to RegistrarStats.com.
.XYZ domain registrations are only surpassed by .Com, .Net, .Org, .Info, .Biz, .US and .Mobi (actually .US is a ccTLD not a TLD)
This is the first day I have seen .XYZ stats picked up by RegistrarStats.com which shows .XYZ picking up over 4,000 registrations and the only one of the now top 8 to pick up net registrations (of course .XYZ does not have deletions yet)
Years before there was ntldstats.com, and namestat.org, which have popped up this year to track stats on the new gTLD’s, RegistrarStats.com was the go to source for to find stats on domain name registrations across TLD registries and registrars.
While the two newer services are free, RegistrarStats.com is subscription based and you have to be approved to spent the money and get access.
Also unlike the two newer services RegistrarStats.com tracks stats not just on the new gTLD’s but on all incumbent strings like .Com, .Net and .Org and although it generally does not track country code extensions (ccTLD’s) but does include .US.
Since launching just a few months ago, .XYZ has passed .Asia, .Name, .Tel, .Pro, .XXX to name a few.
While most will still point to the Network Solutions fee domain giveaway to account for .XYZ success, I haven’t seen the number move on the NetSol side for many days and the percentage of .XYZ registrations was a high as over 86% coming from NetSol is now sitting at 77%.
According to ntldstats.com, which is updated sometimes twice a day, .XYZ tops 300,000 registrations at the moment at 301,627.
RegistrarStats.com is updated once a day.
