New gTLDs: Insights for Q3 2015

According to Christa Taylor:
"Registration volumes in this tier have increased by 14% over Q2 and 6% over Q1. Thus, postulating that TLDs in tier 1 are understood by registrants and/or promotions have improved registrant recognition producing increased registrations. As the new gTLD industry continues to develop, tier 1 TLDs are more likely to gain in registration volumes and revenues further increasing the performance gap over tier 2".
