2014 Edition - French Domain Industry Report

The Afnic Industry Report on Domain Names provides the key figures and trends related to the global domain name market.

The June Report proposes an informative study where Afnic verifies a common rule among experts of the domain name market.
The 50/50 law claims that the number of domain names registered by the end of the 1st day of the public opening of a TLD amounts to 50% of the stock that the TLD will achieve by the end of its 1st month, and that the latter number will represent 50% of the stock at the end of the 1st year.

On June 1st 2014, Afnic performed a test to verify the 50/50 law on 46 new TLDs that had been publically open for more than one month and whose stock exceeded 5,000 names.

  • Find out all the results obtained from this test in the June AFNIC Industry Report on Domain Names in France, titled: “Launch of the new TLDs: validity of the 50/50 law”.
