10 million new domain names registered

A milestone is reached with more than 10 million new domain names registered.

According to Jean Guillon:
One would think it is a lot. I consider this being a lot of domain names but taking a look at previous projections from new gTLD applicants, this is very few. New gTLDs will require more time to develop.

Extract from the article:
"In addition to these top 5 registries, there are also 8 extensions that have over 100,000 domain names registered: .Club, .Science, .Party, .Link, .Click, .Ren, .Website, and .Realtor. .Online and .Date have just a bit fewer than 100,000 registered domain names".
