Our New gTLD Utilization Report for May reveals that there have now been over 1,300 registrations under .brand (and closed) top-level domains. This is an increase of over 60% since our March report, suggesting .brand activity is starting to pick up. In our latest report, we take a look at some interesting examples, including the five .brand/closed domains that already have an Alexa Web Ranking.

CSC-gTLD-Report_May15-ENCSC’s New gTLD Utilization report also includes:

  • .brands and closed domains in search – highlights and observations
  • The number of new gTLDs in the Alexa Top 1M
  • An updated list of CSC’s Top 10 TLDs with the six domains that are still at the top
  • More stats from CSC’s New gTLD Utilization Indicator – tracking the new gTLDs that are most successfully penetrating the Alexa Top 1M
