.US Domain Registrations Continue 6-Month Surge With Biggest 1-Month Gain Since ADN Launched

By Ron Jackson

When American Domain Names (ADN.US) launched on July 4th, 2021, we started tracking .US metrics like registration numbers,  aftermarket sales prices, etc. (the statistics are on our Sales & Stats page). In the month that just ended (March 2022),  .US domains scored their 6th consecutive month of registration gains with their biggest one month gain since we started following the numbers.

.US added 37,725 domains in 

March (following gains of 24,750 in February and 10,005 in January) to push total registrations in the United States of America's ccTLD up to 1,822,450. The 72,530 domains added in 1Q-2022 represents a 4.1% jump since the start of the year and .US registrations are up 7.75% since we launched last July. At their current pace they will easily reach a double digit year over year growth rate by the time we hit our 1-year anniversary on July 4, 2022.

A lot of that growth can be attributed to a rising ride lifting all boats. The overall domain market (new registrations and aftermarket sales) has been booming for more than a year now, with no sighs of slowing down after a great opening quarter in 2022. Some recent .US aftermarket sales have no doubt also helped boost interest in .US, especially the $99,999 sale of Drive.us that we told you about last month.

Regardless of what is powering the trend, it is great news for those who have been buying, developing and investing in .US domains ever since the TLD was first opened to all American citizens (and other who serve the American market) on April 24, 2002. Hard to believe the 20th anniversary of that key event is coming up this month. Of course, the history of .US goes back much further than that. .US first went live on February 15, 1985 as the very first ccTLD on the Internet.
