According to the news from Domain Forum of China on May 14th,news stories generate domain name registrations.

Verisign has released its list of trending terms in .com and .net domain name registrations last month.

A couple of terms are directly related to news stories: Nepal, which is recovering from earthquakes, came in at #8. Cuba, which is being opened up even more to the United States, ranked #4. (Read this story about a domain name investor who was really early for Cuba domain names.)

IoT, short for Internet of Things, ranked #6.

(Verisign’s DomainView is down right now, so I can’t get exact numbers of registered domains using these terms.)

Here are the top 10 trending terms in .com, which means they showed the biggest jump in registrations:

1. guys
2. degree
3. download
4. cuba
5. method
6. iot
