The CENTRstats Global TLD Report Q2/2019 has been published. The report covers the global status and registration trends in all top-level domains (legacy gTLDs, new gTLDs and ccTLDs), with additional focus on the European ccTLD market. You can also find the pdf version of the report here.



Highlights from the report

  • Median growth in global domain name registrations has hit a new recorded low;
  • There has been a recovery in growth rates for ccTLDs in Europe. High performing ccTLDs* over the past 12 months were .pt (Portugal), .ie (Ireland), .ee (Estonia) and .fr (France);
  • Combined ccTLDs make up roughly 41% of all domain registrations while .com, the single largest TLD, has a stable market share of 42%;
  • New gTLDs have just under 10% of the market, and .blog and .shop stand out in terms of key performance ratios.
