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.
