.Top Adds Over 75k Domains In 2 Days Moving Into 2nd Place For All New gTLD’s

Posted on the 25 September 2015 by Worldwide @thedomains


The .TOP registry has been on fire adding over 75,000 domain name registration in the past two days

According to .Top now has over 362,000 domains registered moving past .Science and is now only 2nd to .XYZ as the top registered new gTLD domain name extensions.

Yesterday according to .Top picked up over 42,000 registrations and as you can see from the chart (also courtesy of had just around 220,000 registrations at the end of August.

I chatted with Mason Zhang of the .TOP registrar who told me all domain names were registered and except for a few domains that contained the number 4 and/or 0 all domains were also now registered.

According to around 24% of all .Top domain are registered with the Chinese domain registrar, Chengdu West.

The top 6 domain name registrars with the most number of .Top registrations are all located in China.

I’m guessing if you could have bet in Vegas last year when the new gTLD program started to roll out that the two top new gTLD registries by October 1, 2015 would have been .XYZ and .Top you could have gotten some pretty favorable odds.
