Celebrating One Year of .online

Last year this time, one of the most awaited new gTLDs, .ONLINE entered general availability followed by a successful launch. With 10,000 registrations in the first 10 minutes and 38,000 in the first 24 hours, it was one of the most sought after extensions by customers globally.

In the last 12 months, .online has seen continuous growth, global acceptance and adoption from consumers around the world and hit the right notes on all these fronts.

In a short span of time .online has:

  • Become the fastest TLD to hit 38,000 domains in the first 24 hours
  • Climbed up to become the 8th largest nTLD with 380,000+ domains
  • Consistently featured in the top 5 fastest growing nTLDs globally
  • Established itself as the 3rd most recognized and visited new gTLD by end-consumers

Exactly a year later, here is an infographic of what .online has been up to.
