The words "top 10 domain registrars" in purple and yellow text

ICANN has published the latest official data from Verisign (NASDAQ: VRSN) about the .com namespace. This registrar-by-registrar report covers January 2021.

Here’s how registrars did in terms of new .com registrations in January:

1. GoDaddy.com* (NYSE: GDDY) 978,334 (1,109,061 in December 2020)
2. Namecheap Inc. 291,257 (293,601)
3. Newfold Digital+ 212,014 (203,348)
4. Tucows** (NASDAQ:TCX) 205,679 (188,512)
5. Google Inc. (NASDAQ: GOOGL)  169,363 (140,523)
6. Alibaba (HiChina) 154,990 (169,862)
7. Wix (NASDAQ: WIX) 113,294 (88,149)
8. Dynadot 98,314
9. IONOS^ 79,960 (112,642)
10. CentralNic^^ (AIM: CNIC) 73,360 (105,075)

I left Hongkong Domain Name Information Management Co off the list even though it had 91,467 new .com registrations. The site ICANN links to for this registrar has a 2017 copyright date, no SSL certificate, and a @qq.com email address. I’m going to assume these registrations are not from a public-facing registrar.

Here’s the leaderboard of the top registrars in terms of total .com registrations under management as of the end of January.

1. GoDaddy* 55,445,265 (55,136,925 in December 2020)
2. Newfold Digital+  14,525,308 (14,582,476)
3. Tucows** 12,977,992 (12,967,927)
4. Namecheap 7,175,485 (7,007,290)
5. Alibaba  6,122,968 (6,160,015)
6. IONOS^  5,773,208 (5,763,174)
7. TurnCommerce++ 4,647,632 (4,582,174)
8. Google  4,193,876 (4,105,308)
9. CentralNic^^ 3,000,932 (2,951,343)
10. GMO  2,089,337 (2,100,966)

NameSilo crossed 2 million .com domains under management and is slightly below GMO.

Many domain companies have multiple accreditations and I’ve tried to capture the largest ones. See the notes below.
