    Great stats ! Thank you

    It's facts like these that also demonstrate a crack in .com dominance in the start-up sector.

    2014 - 85-90% market share
    2015 - 77-85%
    2016 - 66.45%
    Should this trend continue,
    2017 - 55-58%
    2018 - 48- 50%

    Happy Hunting

    Thank you for the good post. It does not come as a surprise to me .com ranks highest for new businesses. Google appears to likes short URL also in my findings. Many claim good content, and constant updates enhance being found on the net. With billions of web pages out there, one needs every angle you can have.
