.Com rankings: Google tops 3 million .com domains
Google hits a milestone.
ICANN has published the latest official data from Verisign (NASDAQ: VRSN) about the .com namespace. This registrar-by-registrar report covers November 2019.
Google’s domain name registrar hit the 3 million .com domain milestone. It continues to add over 100,000 domains a month with few outbound transfers, so this number will continue to climb.
As has been the case in recent months, there was a lot of shakeup on the monthly leaderboard. I believe this is due to promotions that Verisign offers that are, in turn, sometimes passed on to registrar consumers.
Website builder Wix managed to make the top 10 list this month. Not because its registrations increased, but because the bar to be in the top 10 dropped. Dynadot and Web.com, which had a surge in registrations the prior month, reverted and Wix took their spot.
When the report for March 2020 comes out, expect a surge at Dynadot. It’s offering $5.99 domains this month with a coupon.

1. GoDaddy.com* (NYSE: GDDY) 946,270 (867,828 in October)
