Top domain name registrars for .com

Lots of shifting on the monthly chart, but total domain rankings are unchanged.

The words ".com rankings" next to two graph lines with a yellow background

ICANN has published the latest official data from Verisign (NASDAQ: VRSN) about the .com namespace. This registrar-by-registrar report covers June 2023.

Note that the rankings include multiple registrar accreditations within families of registrars. You can see the list at the end of this post. Starting this month, I’ve combined Squarespace and Google. This adds about a million DUMs to the combined entity.

1. (NYSE: GDDY) 686,900 (776,558 in May 2023)
