At the start of 2019 .LOAN was the #3 nTLD extension with nearly 2.2 million registrations. The promo registration fees which have been holding up registration volumes in many nTLDs were eliminated. Renewals dropped sharply and over the last nine months .LOAN has lost over two million registrations - more than 95% of what it had at the start of the year. .iCU seems to have taken its place but I believe in time, .TOP, .XYZ and .ICU will see a similar decline. .CLUB actually has a nice ring to it and makes sense for many niche websites. It may eventually take the #1 ntld spot. Why am I so cautious about ntlds? .NET and .TV - sounds like a good reg but much harder to sell than one would think.
