    We are almost 4 years into the New gTLD program and domain name registrations have fallen below the 20 million mark.

    These are the domain name registrations that according to NameStat.org are in the zone files. These are the domain names that can potentially resolve, i.e. the domains have nameservers attached to them AND are not in a status that prevents them from resolving, such as a client hold or a pending delete status. (Real number might be 2-3% higher as not all domains with a normal status have nameservers.)

    ntldstats.com counts the numbers differently and has New gTLDs at 23,683,196 today but with 2,562,541 upcoming domain name deletes.
