Latest .com Rankings: The Slowdown Has Begun – Domain Name Wire

They are the fastest growing and largest domain name registrars for .com domains.

ICANN has released the latest official data from Verisign (NASDAQ: VRSN) on the .com namespace. This Registrar-by-Registrar report covers January 2022.

Registrations slowed in the first quarter, and we should see this reflected in reports from major registrars. New .com registrations in January this year were 3,211,986, compared to 3,414,733 last year.

Here’s how registrars fared in terms of new .com registrations in January:
