How many gTLD applications will there be?

With less than a month to go until the window closes for new Internet extension applications, we have combined what statistics are available with industry expert conversations to arrive at an estimate of what market size we are looking at.

What we've used:

  • ICANN TAS registrant number (as a foundation number)
  • Public statements by various registries, registrars and applicants
  • Private conversations with those in the industry
  • A refined form of our own database of applications

First off, a caveat. Although we have used intelligent extrapolation, what we have produced should be considered no more than a best guess. We will be pleasantly surprised if we get close to the final figure.
