The Industry Report on Domain Names published by Afnic provides the key figures and trends related to the global domain name market. The September 2015 edition focuses on the “Big Six»: .com, .net, .org, .biz, .info and .mobi.
It shows that the most recent Legacy TLDs suffer much more from the competition of the new TLDs than .com, .net and .org. The resistance factor can also be seen in the ccTLDs of the European Union, whose growth, at month-end August, was 2.5% over a sliding 12-month period (3.8% for the .fr TLD). It therefore seems premature to proclaim today the “end” of the Legacy TLDs.
All the results of this study can be found the October issue of the French Domain Name Industry Report entitled “2015 Trajectories of the Big Six”
