.Guru which hit a high of over 84,000 domain names on April 1, 2015 now has less than 60,000 domains.
.Guru was the first new gTLD to hit 50,000 registrations back in April 2014.
.Guru was one of the first new gTLD’s Donuts released launched in January 2014.
However as you can see from its second expiration period, which seemed to take place in April of this year, the number of .Guru domain registrations has been in steady decline.
So the loss of domain registrations from its high is around 25%.
Of course the renewal rates of .com have historically been around 73% but the difference is the base of .com continue to grow between new registrations, re-registrations of deleted domains which .guru is not growing just declining.
Anyway an interesting look at one of the early successful new gTLD’s that have premium priced domain registrations and renewals.
