This Weeks New gTLD Totals: Amsterdam 12,681; .FYI 1,159; .MBA 701; .Fans 653

Posted on the 04 September 2015 by Worldwide @thedomains

4 new gTLD extensions launched this week into General Availability (GA) where the could be registered into a 1st come, 1st served basis.

Including domain names registered in Sunrise by trademark holders and before GA (.Fans did not have a landrush or an Early Access Program) here are the total number of domain registrations according to as of the last zone update:

.Amsterdam 12,681

.FYI 1,159

.MBA 701

.Fans 653

.Fans as I said above did not have a landrush or an Early Access Period so all the domains not reserved we made available.

I got noticed that while all of the team names were reserved, for example Gators and Seminoles I think with the extension .fans the singular of the team was available so for example we wound up registering Gator.Fans and Seminole.Fans which I think makes more sense and a better domain.

.Fans domain registrations were priced just under $70 and about half of the 623 registrations were in the Sunrise Period by Trademark Holders.

.FYI and .MBA were both Donuts extension so they had a 5 day Early Access Program were people could pay additional fees to get early registration ahead of GA.

I only got one .MBA domain, GetYour.MBA and didn’t get any .FYI domains.
