The Prediction Made On TheDomains Comes True As The 2 Chinese IDN Both Make The Top 5

Posted on the 28 April 2014 by Worldwide @thedomains

Back on March 19th we published an interview with Simon Cousins about the two extensions TLD Registry is rolling out the Chinese IDN for Online (.在线) as well as  Dot Chinese Website (中文网)

Back then Simon told that:

I would say we have a greater than 50% chance of both of our strings being in the top 5 new gTLD’s in terms of domain name registrations  at the end of landrush.”

Well it took a couple of days longer until the 1st day of general availability (GA) but  Simon’s was right

Just 50 minutes into GA we got this note from the Registry

Dot Chinese Online (.在线) xn--3ds443g | 54,011
Dot Chinese Website (.中文网) xn--fiq228c5hs | 38,838

This of course not puts  these two new gTLD into the top 5 it puts it Dot Chinese Online (.在线)  into the 1st position  passing .Guru and that is just within the 1st hour.

Congrats to the Registry
