[ga] Registrar Market Share
ICANN Blog has a link to the latest registrar invoices (at
http://www.icann.org/financials/gtld-contribution-chart-01-02.htm) which are
based on each registrar's market share.
Based on this I've calculated that market share at the moment is (for those
over 1%) :
Network Solutions, Inc. Registrar 45.45%
register.com, Inc. 11.17%
Tucows, Inc. 8.38%
BulkRegister.com, Inc. 5.23%
Melbourne IT, Ltd. 4.34%
CORE Internet Council of Registrars 2.66%
Internet Domain Registrars 2.45%
eNom, Inc. 1.80%
Dotster, Inc. 1.51%
iHoldings.com, Inc. 1.33%
Schlund+Partner AG 1.16%
Go Daddy Software, Inc. 1.07%
The smallest registrar has market share of 0.0000051% and the 81 registrars
under 1% total 13.45%.
If one assumes 30,000,000 gTLD names at present at a standard rate (I know some
are cheaper) of $35 each 1% market share is approximate revenue of US$10.5
