    Thanks for report, @equity78 Country codes being down slightly in registrations surprises me, but since they include the 'free' ones like .tk, it may not mean as much as one thinks.

    The new extension growth at about 10% stronger than might be expected, although as your summary points out this is really driven by a few extensions like .icu that continue to explode in numbers.

    I had not looked at geographical new extensions previously. Clearly they are doing well in some markets, and not on the map in other markets, even within the same country (e.g. .nyc vs .miami).

    Thanks again,
