.Com Registrations Loses Another 1 Million Domains In Less Than 2 Weeks; Now Under 127 Million

It was just on December 16th that we reported that the number of .Com domain names in the Domain Name Base as reported by Verisign had dropped below 128 Million.

As of today the number of .Com domain names in the Domain Name Base as reported by Verisign who operates the .Com registry has dropped by another million domains to under 127 Million.

In late 2015 the Chinese domain market was on fire and people were registering numeric .com domain names up to 10 digits as well as random letter domain names, now that those domain names have been coming up for renewal for the 1st time many are dropping.

If you forgot how many .com domain names were being registered back in the 4th quarter of 2015 we have reprinted some of our blog post from November 19th 2015:

“”On October 27, 2015, three weeks ago, the .com zone file topped 120 Million for the first time and had 120,034,068 domain names.

So we are looking at an increase of almost 3.2 million new .com domain names since October 27th, three weeks ago.”

Consider that Verisign reported in this last Domain Industry Brief for second quarter of 2015 there were  “296 million domain name registrations across all top-level domains (TLDs), an increase of 2.2 million domain names, or 0.8 percent over the first quarter of 2015.”

So to be clear the there has been more domain names registered in .Com in just the last three weeks than were registered in every domain extension worldwide, including .com, including  all Top Level Domains as well as all ccTLD’s and new gTLD’s. in the 2nd quarter of 2015.

According to that same report for the 2nd Quarter; As of June 30, 2015, “the base of registered names in .com equaled 118.5 million names”.

So the number of  .Com domain names increased since June 30, 2015, until three weeks ago on October 27th, by 1.5 million domains.

In the last three weeks 3.2 Million new .Com Domains were registered, more than twice the number that were registered in the 16 weeks leading up to October 27th.”
