Almost 60% of new gTLDs are parked – is that a good thing or a bad thing?

I find myself somewhat frequently checking nTLDStats.com to follow what’s going on in the world of new gTLDs. One of the recent trends I’ve been keeping an eye on is .TOP overtaking .XYZ as the “most registered” new gTLD and .LOAN is getting closer and closer to overtaking .XYZ to move into the #2 spot.

One of the stats that I haven’t actually looked at in a while is the percentage of new gTLDs that are parked. Well today I looked and the number is 58.89%, and since it’s pretty safe to say that a parked domain name is owned by a Domainer…it’s fair to say that close to 60% of new gTLDs are owned by investors.

My initial thought it…uh that’s not good news, it means that at most, only 40% of registered new gTLDs could be businesses actively branding on them. However let’s be honest, there’s now way that all of the non-parked domains are developed. So how many new gTLDs are actually developed? I think it’s safe to say that a quarter of the names registered by end-users are actually developed and used as a primary domain for their business. Still that number could even be high.
