July Surge Pushes Annual Growth Rate for .US Domain Registrations Into Double Digits

By Ron Jackson

.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). 

This 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.
