Still only 0.9% when all new gtlds combined. It will start falling once registrars stop promoting them by charging normal rates.

Someone with a website receiving alot of traffic( Alexa top 1 million) will never drop his domain name! even if registries increase their price...
what is the sum price of that 1000 ?
When you start at the bottom, the only way to go is up!

Just for kicks, try checking out how many drops after the first year reg's of about a $1.

There are definitely some potential out there, but there is also a lot of money being thrown away.
Most of these sites are spam, scam and malware. Especially in tlds like .xyz that give/gave free/$1 domains.
Quality ngtld sites and alexa top million are two completely different things right now(and will be until registries stop offering free/$1 domains).

IMO, the real and actual growth of ngtlds can only been seen by tracking registries that follow a stable pricing strategy above $15 per domain like donuts that mainly attracts end users and not spammers.

I'm not saying that there aren't quality sites on tlds like .xyz but most are not. As a matter of fact here are the top 50 .xyz sites according to alexa rank. Except for abc.xyz I haven't visited any of the other sites but I think it's obvious from the domains that these aren't "end user" sites.
