.US domain registrations
continue to outperform the overall market. In July 2022, .US
added 38,264 domains (the largest one-month gain
since we started tracking with the launch of this site on
July 4, 2021). That brings total .us registrations up to 1,883,017,
representing a 10.9% surge over where they
stood one year ago on August 1, 2021 (you can see the monthly
progression for .US on our Sales
& Stats page).
is a much higher growth rate than that for all TLDs
combined, as well as for individual categories likes .com
and all ccTLDs, based on data from the most recent Verisign
Domain Name Industry Brief (.pdf file).
Verisign's quarterly report for 2Q-2022 is not out yet, but
their report for 1Q-2022 showed the total
number of domains registered in all TLDs worldwide
was up 13.2 million year over year for an annual growth rare of 3.9%.
The .com TLD alone outperformed the market with a
4.3% growth rate. The 10.9% gain for America's ccTLD (country code
domain) is even more impressive when you compare it to the
most recent published rate for all of the world's ccTLDs combined (every
nation has their own ccTLD). As a
whole the ccTLD category was up 2.4% year over year
at the end of 1Q-2022 but that rate picked up dramatically
in the opening quarter of this year with that specific
quarter up 4.7% from the same quarter in 2021.
