Over 250 new gTLDs and gTLD registries have come online over the last several months. Over six hundred thousand new domains have been registered on the new gTLDs, but the rollout has not been without controversy. New gTLD lawyers who are monitoring the situation note that many of the newly registered domains with these new registries are actually “reserved domains” by the registries themselves. It is unclear what percentage of the domain registrations are legitimate third-party registrations and how many domains are actually reserved by the registries because they are premium domains or because the registries believe they are going to be profitable down the line. Along this same line, many domainers are noting that many of the best domains on these new gTLDs are being held back by the registries. Instead of tens of thousands of new generic dictionary word domain names becoming available, domainers complain that the best domains aren’t being made available to the general public by the registries.
