Afnic Reporting About Impact of New TLDs on Traditional TLDs

By CircleID Reporter

The October 2014 edition of the Afnic Industry Report on Domain Names is out with focus on the impact of the hundreds of new TLDs on "traditional" players. The October 2014 issue shows that gTLDs (.com, .biz., etc.) are impacted by the massive influx of new TLDs on the market whereas ccTLDs (.fr, .re, ...) are better resisting the newcomers.

The histogram above highlights the fact that the contribution of ccTLDs, though moderate, rose from 10% in March to 27% in September 2014, and the figures that show that ccTLDs are not significantly affected by the new TLDs.

Disappointed that the link to the putative report is actually to a Japanese page, which has no relation to the subject discussed.
