.Com Winners & Losers


No change at the top other than fewer registrations.

ICANN published the latest official .com transactions report from Verisign, which includes data by registrar for April 2017.

There was no change in the order of the top five registrars ranked by total new registrations, although the numbers were down quite a bit from the prior month. March had more registrations than usual, which means there might have been some sort of end-of-quarter registry promotion with discounts and a reversion back to the mean in April.

Here are the top registrars in terms of new registrations:

1. GoDaddy* 867,537
2. Tucows** 184,327
3. HiChina 149,279
4. PublicDomainRegistry 116,235
5. Namecheap 116,132

Here are the top five registrars (open to the public) for net inbound transfers during the month:

1. HiChina +20,694
2. GoDaddy +11,791
3. Google +7,441
4. Epik +6,796
4. Google +8,199
5. NameSilo +6,648

On the flip side, these five registrars saw the biggest net outflow of .com domain names due to transfers:

1. eName -12,323
2. Fabulous -7,730
3. Tucows -7,232
4. PublicDomainRegistry -7,113
5. Domain.com -7,066
