Stats about the .blog New gTLD extension


The .blog registry, Knock Knock WHOIS There, shared some stats about the quality of the New gTLD extension.

Knock Knock WHOIS There, LLC is a subsidiary of Automattic, the parent company of and Jetpack. It was created in 2015 to manage the launch and development of the .blog gTLD.

Here are the shared stats:

  1. High Renewal Rate over 74%
  2. High Usage Rate over 65%
  3. High Attachment Rates of over 85% to paid services
  4. Low Abuse Rate at less than a 0.02%

They didn’t say how they came up with the numbers on points 2, 3 and 4.

Here are some additional stats I was able to find:

According to .blog has 185,494 domains registered today. It appears that the .blog extension growth stopped in the summer of 2019. 103,788 (56%) of these domains are registered with the Automattic Inc. registrar.

.Blog domains renew at about $20-$30+ depending on the registrar.

According to Sold.Domains and Namebio there have been only 6 .blog 4-figure domain sales and only 1 since 2017.
