    In early December new extension domains reached the 30 million registration point according to nTLD statistics. The previous high of about 29.5 million was established in April 2017, although over most of last two years the total was not far from 26 million registrations. The number of registrations is strongly influenced by deep first-year discounting, and is probably not the best measure of the health of the new extension domain space.

    While there are many hundreds of new extensions, just 18 of them have 1% or more of the total number of new extension registrations. The .icu extension is now the most registered new extension. There are 7 extensions with more than one million registrations.

    While there are many registries, the top ten account for more than 88% of all new extension registrations. Radix and Donuts have the most domains under registration.

    Just five registrars, led by Alibaba, GoDaddy and Namecheap, have half of all new domain registrations.

    If we use Alexa 1M as the measure of web traffic, .xyz, .online, .club and .site are the most used new extensions.

    There have been 858 new extension domain sales so far in 2019, down from last year. The average price was $3932, up marginally. The top 26 sales ranged in price from $10,500 to $335,000. About 27% of these were registry sales.

    While .app, .world, .global and .life saw multiple sales in the 2019 top-26 list, 21 different extensions appeared at least once on the list. All but two were single words (one acronym and one mixed-mode). I counted as a single word one that was a single word domain hack. Sedo was the venue for 10 of the 26 sales, although several domainers had multiple sales in the top-26 list.



    Most Registered Extensions

    There have been changes at the top of the new global Top Level Domains (new gTLD) list with .icu taking over first place less than two years after its introduction. The former Famous Four extensions, such as .loan, dropped out of the list of most registered extensions following the end of deep discounting in those extensions.

    Here is an ordered list by registration number along with the percentage of all new gTLD registrations in that extension. The data changes regularly and you can find the most up-to-date information using nTLD statistics.
    1. .icu 14.3%
    2. .top 11.8%
    3. .xyz 9.1%
    4. .site 6.5%
    5. .club 4.8%
    6. .online 4.6%
    7. .vip 4.4%
    8. .wang 3.1%
    9. .live 2.3%
    10. .work 2.3%
    11. .shop 2.2%
    12. .fun 1.9%
    13. .app 1.8%
    14. .space 1.5%
    15. .website 1.2%
    16. .buzz 1.2%
    17. .gdn 1.2%
    18. .store 1.1%
    Just 18 of the approximately 700 delegated general-availability extensions have 1% or more of the registration share, and only the top 7 have more than one million registrations. Those 7 extensions combined have significantly more than 50% of all new extension registrations.

    While increasing use of privacy cloaks geographical information to some degree, there are very strong regional concentrations. Extensions such as .top have always been mainly registered in China, and the recent growth in .icu is primarily in Asia as well.

    While several factors have driven this year’s increases in the total number of new extension registrations, among the most important were the rapid growth in .icu, a strong release of .dev, steady growth in .best under new management, approval of more new extensions in China, and the release to standard status by Donuts of about one million domain names that were formerly registry premium.


    Registry Concentration

    There are very different patterns in how different registries have approached new extension opportunities. Some registries such as Club have concentrated on a single top level domain (TLD), others like Radix have a small number of different new extensions, while companies like Donuts have large numbers of mainly special-purpose extensions, many with fairly limited numbers of registrations.

    According to share of the total new extension registrations, here are the top 10 registries. The title for each is also a link to the registry website in most cases. I list in brackets the number of new gTLDs delegated to that registry along with a selection of the better known TLDs within their holdings. In some cases not all of the delegated extensions are currently available.
    1. Radix 18.1% (9, site, .online, .fun, .space, .store, .tech, .website, etc.).
    2. Donuts 14.3% (238, .life, .live, .today, .world, .agency, .solutions, .company, .services, .ltd, .games plus many more).
    3. Short Dot 14.1% (2, .icu, .bond).
    4. Jiangsu Bangning Science & Technology 11.6% (1, .top).
    5. XYZ 9.2% (9, .xyz, .monster, .baby, etc.).
    6. Minds+Machines 7.6% (30, .work, .fit, .vip, plus many more).
    7. Club 4.7% (1, .club).
    8. Zodiac 3.2% (6, .wang means net).
    9. GMO 2.6% (6, .shop).
    10. Charleston Road (Google) 2.6% (46, many not yet in use, .app, .dev, .page).
    While there are many other registries, the top ten registries account for more than 88% of all new extension registrations. In fact simply Radix plus Donuts account for about one-third of all registrations.


    New Extension Registrars

    While many new extensions are available through most registrars, the majority of the registrations are concentrated at just a few registrars. Alibaba leads with 16.8% of new extension registrations. Together Alibaba, GoDaddy, Namecheap, GMO and West account for more than half of all new extension registrations.

    Prices for both registrations and renewals vary extensively, so use resources such as DomComp and TLD-List to find the best prices and features. Note that some of the popular Asian registrars are missing from these lists, however.


    Website Use of New Extension Domains

    Measuring actual web use is complex, and each of the various methods are susceptible to deliberate manipulation. When I looked at the Cisco Global Ranking results, while no new gTLDs made even the top ten extensions, a number were ranked approximately equal to various well known country code extensions.

    Another way to measure use is by counting how many websites on a domain in that extension appear in the Alexa 1M list (the most current list can be dowloaded at this link). If we use Alexa 1M as the measure of web traffic, .xyz, .online, .club and .site are the most used new extensions.

    The Alexa list, especially sites in the lower half of the list, vary extensively from day to day. You can readily see how many domains from any new extension are in the Alexa 1M by using the NameStat site. Here are the 25 new extensions with the largest number of names in the Alexa 1M on the day I checked.
    1. .xyz 2145
    2. .online 1726
    3. .club 1666
    4. .site 1233
    5. .top 845
    6. .live 731
    7. .news 359
    8. .space 357
    9. .shop 333
    10. .website 299
    11. .store 297
    12. .fun 275
    13. .app 270
    14. .tech 256
    15. .guru 245
    16. .vip 242
    17. .life 238
    18. .icu 227
    19. .one 216
    20. .today 196
    21. .blog 194
    22. .media 171
    23. .world 160
    24. .best 151
    25. .link 150
    All others had fewer than 150 sites in the Alexa 1M when I checked. Extensions just below those on this list, in order, were .host, .cloud, .dev, .network, .win, .center, .video and .work.

    We might expect that sites with more registrations would have more websites achieving Alexa 1M status, other things being equal. Conveniently NameStats shows the number of registrations per name in the Alexa 1M for each extension. For example, the number is 720 for .online and 3960 for .top with a smaller number meaning better relative use. As a comparison, on the day I checked the number was 497 for .com, one site in Alexa 1M for every 497 registrations (using DomainNameStats data. While the number on Alexa 1M is not bad in many new extensions, recognizing their registration base, if we look only at the world’s largest sites, say the top 1000, new extensions are very rare.


    Sales in New Extensions in 2019

    As I write this 2019 is not yet over, so these are not quite the final figures for the year. Using only NameBio data, there have been 858 new gTLD sales so far in 2019 with an average sales price of $3932. This results in a total new extension domain name sales volume of $3.4 million. That seems discouraging compared to 2018 when there were 1490 sales, a $3847 average price, and $5.4 million in sales volume. However 2018 was strong compared to the previous two years, and the 2019 figures are not much different from the five-year average.

    For some reason .top sales have stopped being reported on NameBio – the last report was Aug 2, 2019. In 2018, 557 of the 1490 sales were in .top, accounting for $2.3 million. The end of .top sales reporting seems to account for about $900,000 of the difference in dollar volume. The other major difference between 2018 and 2019 is that we have seen fewer six-figure sales: just one in 2019 versus six in 2018, three of those in the .top extension.

    Here is a list of the highest value new gTLD sales so far in 2019. I intended it as a top-25 list, but since there was a tie, there are 26 names on the list. The links will take you to the NameBio records for each sale with additional information.
    1. free.games $335,000 WebQuest
    2. ZB.app $91,000 Afternic
    3. business.club $60,936 NameClub
    4. new.work $38,000 New.Life
    5. clean.tech $30,000 Sedo
    6. support.app $30,000 UserScape
    7. buy.game $29,999 WebQuest
    8. radio.cloud $28,000 Sedo
    9. smart.bio $27,685 Sedo
    10. UI.dev $25,000 Sedo
    11. all.life $25,000 New.Life
    12. T.win $22,500 Sedo
    13. CBD.world $20,000 BQDN
    14. simple.life $20,000 WebQuest
    15. DX.media $28,000 Private
    16. up.top $19,880 Jiangsu Bangning
    17. go.holdings $19,000 Sedo
    18. human.capital $15,500 Sedo
    19. diabetes.help $15,000 Uniregistry
    20. travel.global $14,500 DotGlobal
    21. ploy.shop $13,544 Sedo
    22. bounce.house $13,000 WebQuest
    23. 4U.tube $12,000 Sedo
    24. one.network $11,333 Sedo
    25. good.world $10,500 WebQuest
    26. pay.global $10,500 DotGlobal
    Almost always high value sales are for single word domain names with an excellent match to the extension. The niches are varied, as are the extensions. 21 different extensions are represented in the top 26 new gTLD sales of 2019. .app appeared three times on the list, and .life and .world twice each.

    Five of the sales were by WebQuest, two each by @New.Life and DotGlobal, ten at Sedo, and the rest were through a variety of venues and sellers. Interestingly, the two sales by @New.Life were to different purchasers but on the same day.

    As far as I was able to determine, 27% of the sales are registry sales, and about 18% by dollar volume. Those are somewhat lower percentages of registry sales than observed in the past. Note these are percentages just for the top-26 list, not an analysis of all new extension sales in the year.

    Additional information is provided in this look at some major new extension sales.


    Final Thoughts

    While I have tried to present the above data objectively without personal comment, here are my thoughts on new domain extensions.
    • I think it is not helpful to view new gTLDs as one entity. Individual new extensions are very different - some are geographical, some general purpose, some narrowly specialized, etc.
    • In my opinion, the idea that the purpose of new extensions was primarily to increase the domain pool and give alternatives to legacy extensions was somewhat misguided. Rather, I feel that the new extensions are best suited for new uses, such as in social media and product campaigns, and to serve users who dislike the main legacy choices. As such, I see new and legacy extensions as complementary rather than competitive.
    • I think the top 26 sales, and a similar analysis of a much longer dataset of new gTLD sales, demonstrates that it is not primarily which new extension that influences worth of a new extension domain name. Rather it is the match between the name and the extension that is most important. We see that through the diversity of extensions represented on the top-26 list.
    • While multiple word names occasionally sell for good amounts in new domain extensions, it is relatively rare.
    • The main argument in favour of new extensions is probably elegant design of expressing exact meaning without anything else added. Certainly some of the users who purchased six-figure new extension domains have expressed that view. There is a NamePros thread on expressions that look better as a new gTLD.
    • Public recognition and acceptance of new gTLD extensions remains weak overall. That means that in most cases new extension investment will be a long-term game.
    • Pricing of new extension domain names is challenging because of the limited number of publicly recorded past sales. The competition with names held by the registry, and sold as premium, is another obstacle in new extension investing.
    • More clarity and certainty regarding renewal costs would help acceptance of new extensions by cost-conscious end users.
    • I think the main competition for new domain extensions is not from the legacy extensions, but rather general purpose country extensions such as .io, .ai, .me, and .co. Ironically, the success of these, while drawing market share from new extensions in the short term, may also pave the way for acceptance of alternative extensions.
    • Investment in new extensions is probably more complex than .com-only domain investing for several reasons. It is necessary to know the options available, and with 700+ extensions that is challenging. The pricing, both registration and especially for renewals, is highly variable. Using just one registrar doesn’t work well in new extension investing. It is necessary to look into the health of the registry, as well as public acceptance, or not, of the extensions under consideration.
    • In my opinion there are already too many new extensions, and I hope that ICANN will slow the release of new ones.
    • It is generally much easier to sell .com to other domainers than any other extension. It is important to keep this in mind if your business plan includes selling wholesale to other domain investors.
    • Even when registry sales are excluded, it seems that average prices are, surprisingly, somewhat higher in new extensions. That may simply be an illusion because there are many more domainer acquisitions mixed into the sales record for legacy extensions. The higher prices are not enough to make up entirely for lower sell-through rates in new extensions, however.
    • Even if domain investors decide not to invest in new gTLDs, I think that some level of familiarity with new extensions is still valuable. For example, if you are selling a two-word domain name Word1Word2.com you should know if Word1.Word2 is a domain name and its status. This works in reverse as well, and new gTLD investors should also at least look into .com offerings related to their domain names in my opinion.
    • The skills needed to successfully sell new extensions may be somewhat different than those needed for legacy domain investing. Nevertheless, many of the principles such as emphasize quality over quantity, invest in niches you understand well, and take a disciplined and analytical approach, apply to both.

    Your Thoughts

    I would love to hear your opinions on the overall health of new domain extensions, and the prospects and challenges they have for domain investors. Do you feel more or less positive about them than you felt a year ago? Are you strictly a legacy investor, strictly a new extension investor, or a mix with a few new extensions within a mainly legacy portfolio.

    The sales price of some of these extensions is mouth-watering considering they are not .com
    Job well done for the compilation of this list @Bob Hawkes

    good job
    thank you so much
    will share on linked

    More than 1,000 new gTLDs (generic top-level domains) were released five years ago. How are they doing in China? Let's look at the best-selling ones as they relate to China.

    A bit of personal preference. I don't like to call them "new gTLDs" because they are actually no longer new and the term "gTLD" is not easy to understand. So, I just call them niche extensions because many of them have specific uses -- such as .club, .app, and .news.

    When it comes to researching niche extensions, I use Namestat.org. Its home page provides several categories useful to investors: Top 10, Top 20, and Top 50. For this article, I've picked the Top 10 category and listed the best-selling extensions below.

    Ranking Extension Total Domains China Only
    1 .icu 4,152,307 3,660,320
    2 .top 3,348,847 895,604
    3 .xyz 2,379,173 755,200
    4 .site 1,727,536 456,675
    5 .vip 1,302,939 381,847
    6 .online 1,245,226 224,491
    7 .club 1,213,987 451,678
    8 .wang (net) 943,145 936,994
    9 .live 703,269 -
    10 .shop 636,764 230,032
    Note that the "China Only" column indicates domains where country of registration can be clearly identified. Because domains can be placed in privacy or their information blocked due to General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), their country of registration then cannot be known. The extreme case happens to .live where the vast majority of .live domains are under privacy (97%), making it not possible to determine whether the domains are registered in China or not.

    The Top 10 list shows that China is very active in the niche extensions. One explanation I have read is that many Chinese investors see themselves as being too late to make it big in the well-established areas of .com and .cn. They wanted to start in a new investment area and the niche extensions offered them such opportunity when they were released a few years ago. Of course, low-price and aggressive promotion by registries/registrars also help.

    In the list, there are several extensions that are well understood in China. "top", "vip", "club", and "shop" are simple English words that most Chinese consumers should have no problem understanding their meanings. For example, "vip" is a popular term that is already incorporated in many domains such as VIP.com and VIPKids.com. Obviously, .wang domains are 99% registered in China because it is actually a Pinyin word meaning "net" and it's a common name. What really puzzles me is the .icu extension. The term is supposed to mean "I see you" but I doubt it is widely understood in China.

    Surprisingly, some of the niche extensions in the list have done much better than established extensions in China. For example, .icu has 3.7 million registrations, which is more than three times the 1.1 million .net registrations in China. However, none of the niche extensions are included in the annual "Statistical Report on the Internet Development in China" by CNNIC (China Internet Network Information Center), which has been tracking domains since 1996. This may suggest their real use in website development is not significant enough to prompt CNNIC to include them.

    Therefore, if you plan to sell domains in these niche extensions to China, be prepared that there may not be many corporate buyers ready for them and most activities may be limited to trading among investors.

    The .company TLD is currently in 44th place registration wise with about 67,000 registrations.

    In terms of use as Alexa 1M indicated, it has 88 sites in Alexa 1M, or 1 per about 730 registrations, a moderately good ratio.

    In terms of sales, there is just one NameBio listed sale in 2019 at $3000, but if you look over the past two years it has had 12 sales with an average price of $2774.

    Note that anyone can use the resources with links at the end of the article to readily find information for any domain extension of interest to them. nTLD stats for registration information, NameStat for detailed information including Alexa 1M use stats and regional registration base, and NameBio for publicly recorded sales data.

    It is not mentioned in the article, but DNPric.es is also a site to learn additional sales information.

    Also if you do a GoDaddy GoValue search on a similar term you may well find a number of sales not in NameBio (supposedly Afternic GD sales mainly). I stumbled upon an unreported at the time $25k plus .app sale plus prices for 6 5-figure .news sales not in NameBio, for example. Even people who do not like the values suggested by GoValue are losing good sales intelligence if they never use it.

    Thanks for this in-depth report @Bob Hawkes! :)

    Oddly enough, as much as I am not a big fan of investing in ngTLDs, things are actually worse than I though. The end user metrics are still frightfully bad overall. In all honesty, I probably couldn't name you a single ACTIVE website on a ngTLD off the top of my head aside from the biggest headline sales (and that's only because I follow domain news so it's hard to avoid knowing about domains like Vacation.Rentals etc)

    This was probably the biggest mistake and tragedy of the entire program. The whole thing was sloppy and lazy and missed a huge opportunity to do some serious innovation in the domain industry. It seems new functionality could be driven by some of the newer crypto related ngTLDs. But it would have been cool to see all kinds of new functionalities be part of the actual bidding process (meaning that consideration should have been given for more than just money).

    I've been saying for a while now that .co is what I consider the best ngTLD. Because despite technically being a ccTLD, in actual fact it acts and operates as a 2 character ngTLD. Much like .tv, .ly, .me, etc.

    I think a curious study would be to look at .biz numbers ~18 after it's creation. It's probably the best TLD to analyse in trying to predict the future of some of the better ngTLD's.

    I don't think quantity is important or relevant. Get more USABLE ones. As domainers we obviously don't want more, but looking at it from the perspective of a global citizen, then the number has zero significance at all. What matters is numbers of potentially usable domains. For some ngTLDs that number is astronomically different from others. For example, .web has the likelihood of eclipsing all other ngTLDs within days. But more importantly .. the number of usable domains will be even proportionately higher.

    Yeah .. there is no serious way to accurately compare. The biggest problem with reported .com sales is that wholesale sales bleed significantly into retail sales .. in fact there's no real way to separate them when talking global metrics. That's actually a big reason why automated appraisals are so wrong most of the time.

    Yeah. There may be an extra reason though. ICANN = Money Making Machine. By introducing new extensions, ICANN:

    1) Received $$$ from auctions (rights to run the particular extension). It is unclear where exactly the $$$ are now, may still be sitting @ their bank account pending final decisions, but ICANN is already receiving interest from it.

    2) ICANN charges a fee for each new registration or transfer. More domains = more $$$ to ICANN

    3) By introducing tons of new tlds, ICANN also somewhat delayed technical progress. It would now be harder to replace domain names / extensions with new technologies we may not yet imagine. Because of a lot of $$$ etc. involved in setting new registries, promotions etc. Will our grandchildren need domains? It is far from obvious. So, delayed technical progress means more $$$ to ICANN in a long run. And, in this case, it also helps domainers (as a side effect)

    We domainers, who LIVE in the domain space, are very enamored of these "new" extensions. My question: if you are marketing online to the general (non-domainer) public, and have, for example, TurkeyLurkey.company as a domain name for your business, how much time, effort and money will you have to expend to make this name brandable and memorable vs. a dotcom?

    When you have an inventory like SEDO, you can afford to "run these names and prices up the flagpole" and see if anyone bites. Once in awhile, these moonshots hit the moon.

    If, as on owner of TurkeyLurkey brand, I already own TurkeyLurkey.com, do I really need TurkeyLurkey.xyz or TurkeyLurkey.top ?
    If I use TurkeyLurkey brand, but do not own TurkeyLurkey.com, does it make sense to continue? Wouldn't rebranding be better?
    These are important questions...

    Because they can never have VacationRentals.com which sold for $35 million.

    Yes, it included content, like Money.com, but premium is premium, amirite :xf.wink:
    (i concluded included content,after investigating my own)

    Great post Bob! Thank you.

    I'm happy to see .app capture 20% of Top 10 highest value new gTLD sales so far in 2019, especially considering the extension is only about a year and a half old.

    According to https://ntldstats.com/tld/app there are 571,472 .app domain names registered today, with 563,077 (98.53%) in the zone file. That's amazing growth for any gTLD that wasn't artificially inflated and propped up by low reg fees.

    I appreciate that .app domain names enforce HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS) by default and are included in the HSTS preload list of all major web browsers. HSTS adds browser speed and security, eliminating adware and walware injections and Man-in-the-Middle cyber attacks such as spying on open WiFi networks.

    I also like that .app is backed and managed by Google, the same company that dominates in mobile, search, geo/maps, web browser, online advertising, AI/ML, etc.

    High Performance Progressive Web App + Exact-Match .app Domain Name = Mobile Marketing Success!

    🖖😎
