    Another new gTLD has joined the exclusive list of those to enter seven figures in terms of domains under management.

    .icu, managed by ShortDot, topped one million names this week, according to COO Kevin Kopas.

    It’s taken about a month for DUM to increase from 900,000 names, and if zone files are any guide half of that growth seems to have happened in the last week.

    .icu domains currently sell for between $1 and $2 for the first year at the cheap end of the market, where most regs are concentrated, with renewals closer to the $10 mark.

    The gTLD joins the likes of .club, .xyz, .site and .online to cross the seven-figure threshold.
