How are ICANN's new TLDs doing? ICANN

ICANN has now accepted several hundred new top level domains (TLDs) and some of them are now open for general registration. I have sized up for zone file access, so I can download daily snapshots of most of the active zones, and I'm making daily counts of the number of names in each zone.

Here's the 20 largest new zones, and the hundred most popular names in the new zones, as of today. Once have more data, I'll make up some charts.

Terminology Question
Hi John,

Can you define the headers in your charts, namely zsize, count, name? Is zsize the number of domain names registered or something that vaguely maps onto that number? I'm not sure what the second chart is about?! Thanks.

nothing exotic
zsize is the number of names in the zone file. I have a little script that counts them and removes the duplicates. The count is the number of different zone files in which that name appears. See the more recent post with the chart which is easier to follow.
