Total with sunrise and landrush now tops 21,000.
The .blog domain name is off to a pretty good start in terms of domain name registrations.
19,035 domain names were registered during the first 24 hours of general availability, the registry confirmed to Domain Name Wire.
That makes a total of 21,115 registrations including sunrise and landrush.
The numbers would be higher if the registry hadn’t held back so many domain names, including all three-letter and shorter domain options.
I think .blog will have steady growth once it’s fully integrated into the WordPress.com blog creation path.
