How Many New gTLD Registrations Will There be by the End of 2015 ? - AmayTian - 03-02-2015

MONDAY,1 MARCH 2015 THE DOMAINS

According to the news from Domain Forum of China on March 1st,the number of new gtld registrations stood at approximately 3.7 million to close out 2014. Our poll question for March is where do you see that number for 2015 ?

The poll just went up and we did provide for choices that would show a contraction, so far half of the very small sample size has voted that way. Today according to nTLDStats the number is sitting around 4.4 million. It certainly makes sense that a lot of robo – registrations will not be renewed, some of the premium renewals will not renewed either as domain investors took a one year gamble to see what they could do with these in the aftermarket.
