ICANN has published the latest official data from Verisign (NASDAQ: VRSN) about the .com namespace. This registrar-by-registrar report covers September 2022.

It was a slow month for new .com registrations at the top registrars compared to the month prior. Chinese registrar Gname made it into the top 10 for new registrations. The registrar has over 2 million .com domains under management. I hadn’t heard of this company until they recently started advertising on Domain Name Wire. It was the only Chinese registrar to make the top 10 new registrations list in September.

Here’s how registrars did in terms of new .com registrations in September:

1.* (NYSE: GDDY) 710,134 (759,027 in August)
2. Namecheap Inc. 278,063 (300,556)
