Winning Streak for .US Domain Registrations Reaches 7 Months in a Row - On Track for Double Digit Growth YOY

By Ron Jackson

.US domain registrations surged for the seventh consecutive month in April 2022, adding 16,823  domains to push the American ccTLD's total to 1,839,273. Over the past three months the .US total has risen 4.5% and in the 10 months since ADN launched last July, .US is up 8.75% - a far faster growth rate than the ccTLD market  at large (every nation on earth and a variety of regions has an official ccTLD of their own. Germany's .de, the United

Kingdom's .uk, Canada's .ca and the USA's .us are just a few examples of the more than 300 top level country code domains on the internet).

If the average .US monthly growth rate for this year continues in May and June, .US will reach July 1 with a year over year jump of 11.4% and a six-figure increase in domains registered. By comparison, Verisign's latest Domain Name Industry Brief reported that the overall ccTLD market dropped 4% last year with all of that drop (and then some) caused by one TLD -  China's .cn, after it underwent a reduction that lopped a whopping 9.4 million domains from the TLD. However, even after taking .cn out of the mix, the overall ccTLD market's growth rate, while solid, was limited to 3.8%. With two months to go, .US is on track to triple that level of increase in the year ending July 1.
