Is there any resourceful site to check the usage stats of any TLD/gTLD/ccTLD ?

?

Don't you agree stats of each TLDs usage give us clear idea of end user's needs and priorities?

    Hi...

    As you know there are hundreds of TLDs...

    .com is the most popular and most preferred extension...

    I am wondering is there a way to see how the end users / organisations are using different TLDs..

    The TLD/gTLD/ccTLDs extensions are created thinking of some specific category/genre/niche... But we see that is not exactly followed... people use it according to their own interests.. priorities...or in some cases to just be creative in naming their site..(like brandable names)

    I want to know can we get any clear/rough stats of that particular extension being used for ?!

    Using Namebio...we can get huge data about any given extension...but all this is related to selling price.

    We can find out about any site
    Individually...but how to get full details of usage of any extension..?

    extensions like .VIP .live .guru .tech .ninja (many more) don't give clear idea of their potential usage possibilities..

    I think if we can find these stats it gives a great advantage in what to choose from and where to sell that...
    Because whatever the extension numbers say / sales stats say it doesn't matter if end user decision is to purchase that particular domain...this data gives us after sales usage...hence clear idea of where to invest.

    Thanks for reading...
    Please share your opinions/ideas/resources that might be useful...:xf.smile:

    I should start writing in few lines...so that I can make my point clearly.

    Sorry for long explanation...:xf.frown:

    Thanks @CarlosN

    The site is packed with all details of gTLDs...

    I was aware of domain name stats but this is different..

    Really we can see a lot deeper into the end users interests..that definitely will be helpful in determining what to consider while purchasing domains...

    Need to put lot of time into this research...and need a lot of patience:xf.wink::xf.frown:

    Thanks again.

    If looking for stats on web use of TLDs and how it has changed over the years, and many other Internet related things, this site is great.

    https://w3techs.com/

    I like their monthly/quarterly/annual tables a lot.

    PS I find your poll posed in confusing fashion. Stats show what has registered/used/sold in past. That helps inform what might well sell in future, but does not really address user needs. For example lets say the new field of AutonomousBakingMachines emerges (I made that up). As end user I need domains that are descriptive of that field but it is brand new so one never sold before or was not used in past.

    The usage stats took us interesting. A recent industry brief showed about 332 million total domain registrations. About 22.4 million or about 7% of those registrations are new TLDs. This tool shows...

    Xyz . 0.2%
    Club 0.1%
    Online 0.1%
    Top. 0.1%
    Site 0.1%
    Win . 0.1%
    None other even round to 0.1%.

    So if 7% of registrations are new extensions but less than 1% of websites are new extensions, that certainly confirms there is significant speculation in New extensions.

    Hi @garptrader

    Thanks for pointing out...
    I agree with you...
    There is consistency in data..
    I saw somewhere on NamePros itself about same imbalanced data stats from Domain Tools / Domain IQ...

    I know these are not exact figures....but they can give some rough idea...

    Here is another source I saw on NamePros itself...

    @garptrader I don't disagree with your conclusion, and it is not inconsistent that what I would have expected with extensions only mainly 1-4 years old. However, just to make sure people understand the assumptions, would point out that the data only counts websites that make it to the top 10M of sites globally (there are a total of about 1.9 billion websites in total). If one looked at all traffic (a tough technical job) the numbers might be different, but I doubt they would be much different. That is, if it could be argued most new extension sites are less active, their total traffic would be underrepresented in a study that just used the top 10M.

    I find it totally believable that the legacy global and country code extensions have relatively 5 or 7 times the proportional representation of the newest extensions. Of course even though each individually does not add much, the 900+ other extensions might add significantly in total. An easy way to take out that factor would be to use only the registration numbers for the ngTLDs being considered with numbers here.

    ps By the way you can get more precise use than the one significant figure in the big table by looking up each extension individually. I did that in my associated blog post and here are the numbers for the ones I mention. .xyz (0.18%), .club (0.15%), .online (0.12%), .site (0.07%), .top (0.08%), and .win (0.05%) so these 6 add to 0.65%.

    Valid point @MetBob ..
    The data is about top 10 million...we should keep that in mind.
    Overall we can not expect to get exact numbers in anyway...

    The mentioned sites are showing even on daily registered domains... I thought it is very advanced and also can raise some privacy issues.. when I checked for my domain according it's date of registration... I didn't see it in database.

    I don't know what to think... relieved or disappointed!
