Premium revenue continues to grow for new top level domain operator.

Graphic with the words "premium domains"

Top level domain name company Radix reported that its premium domains grossed about $4.64 million at the retail level in the first half of this year across its 10 TLDs.

That’s up 22% compared to the same period a year before and about the same increase compared to the second half of 2022.

As with any SaaS business, renewal revenue continued to grow, accounting for $3.25 million in H1. It was $2.74 million in the second half of 2022. That leaves $1.39 million in new registration revenue.

These numbers are based on what registrars grossed, not what the registry received.

.Tech led the way with 510 new registrations grossing $484k. Other top TLDs included:

.Online – 370 for $256k

.Store – 319 for $213k

.Space – 294 for $192k

.Site – 219 for $105k

The domains ranked the same way for renewal revenue.

GoDaddy, Namecheap, and Google accounted for the most new premium registrations in that order. (The loss of Google as a registrar could impact these numbers in the future, although presumably, many people will search at other registrars that sell premium domains.)
