New .com ranking: a surprise entry into the top 10 – 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 December 2021.

A registrar called Conbin Information Systems jumped into the charts for monthly registrations. I guess it was a big deal. Here’s how registrars fared in terms of new .com registrations in December:

1. GoDaddy.com* (NYSE: GDDY) 720,658 (803,348 in November)
2. Namecheap Inc. 257,979 (270,852)
