The new gTLD is back over the 900,000 domain mark in the zone file.
The first time the .XYZ new gTLD crossed the 900,000 domain registration mark was in May of 2015. At that time the percentage .XYZ domain names registered at NetworkSolutons.com was over 41%
The extension which had as many as over 1.13 million registrations according to https://ntldstats.com/tld/xyz, fell below 800K registrations as the “free” .XYZ domain names given to Network Solutions customers expired and started going through the delete cycle.
.XYZ has been on a tear once again registering over 9,000 domains, yesterday putting them back over 900,000 domain names in the zone according to RegistrarStats.com
.XYZ is the 7th most registered TLD extension after .com .net, .org, .info, .biz, and .us.
According to ntldstats.com the number of .XYZ domain names registered at NetworkSolutions.com, which once stood at over 350,000 and represented as high as 85% of all .XYZ registrations is now under 170,000 registrations which represent less than 15% of all .XYZ registrations.
