The new gTLD domain name extension, .XYZ is which won’t be two years old until, June of this year, just surpassed the domain extension .Biz which has been around since 2001 in the number of domain registrations.
According to RegistrarStats.com, .XYZ now has 2,369,039 domain name registered which passed .Biz which has 2,305,687 domains registered.
In passing .Biz, .XYZ becomes the 5th largest Top Level Domain (TLD) in terms of domain name registrations.
Only .com, .net. .org and .info have more domain names registered than .XYZ.
As I said .Biz launched in 2001 and seemed to reach a all time high of over 3 million registrations in 2014, just before the 1st new gTLD’s started to launch.
.XYZ will have to more than double its current amount of domain registrations to pass .info, which is the 4th largest TLD with over 5.5 million registrations.
On the new gTLD front, the other domain registry growing quickly is .TOP which added over 170,000 domain registrations yesterday and now tops 1.5 Million registrations.
