CENTR Publishes the CENTRstats Global TLD Report for Q1 2021

CENTR has just published the latest edition of its CENTRstats Global TLD report, a quarterly publication that presents statistics and trends in domain name registrations of European country-code domains and the wider global market. According to the report, the median growth of European ccTLDs at the end of Q1 2021 was 4.9% YOY, with a continued increase in demand for new domain purchases. The report goes on to look into pricing, how domains are being used, growth drivers, market share and more.

Here are some additional statistical highlights:

  • Demand in new domain purchases continued to increase in the first quarter of 2021 (based on median domain creation rates) while rates of expirations/deletions remained stable.
  • The median buy price of a CENTR member ccTLD domain is 10.0 EUR (inc. tax and any promotions) with the renewal price at 14.0 EUR (inc. tax). The median promotional price recorded in April 2021 was 6.1 EUR (inc. tax)
  • 25% of ccTLD domains queried are broken or have no functioning content (e.g. HTTP/DNS errors, timeouts etc). A further 16% lead to a registrar holding (parked) page.
  • Across EU countries, the median market share of ccTLDs is stable at 54% based on local registrations and 35% (+2% YOY) based on popular websites.
