ICANN's New gTLD Domains Are Failing Badly, 2015 May Be Even Worse

Extract: "Based on the trends thus far (see chart below), new gTLD registrations for all of FY15 will not onlyfall far short of the ICANN budgetary estimate of 15,000,000, but in fact will be "lucky" to total even a third of that (5,000,000). And that is without even taking into consideration that renewals of new gTLD registrations will begin in 2015 for the first time--how many domain name registrants who received those hundreds of thousands of "free" new gTLD domain name registrations in 2014, will actually pay to renew those mostly worthless new gTLD domain names in 2015?"
