A look at .live domain name

 

.Live domain name is faring well as live online content becomes more popular. Lets dig in.

 

Today, Donuts issued a press release remarking on the growth of its .live top level domain name. .Live is Donutslargest new top level domain based on domains under management (DUMs), which are up about 30% since the start of the year.

 

Lets dig into the data to see how .live domain is doing.

 

Growth and Domains Under Management

 

First, lets look at the domain counts at nTLDStats dating to late 2015:

The domain had steady growth leading into June 2019, at which point DUMs lurched up by a couple of hundred thousand within weeks. This was likely due to new promotion strategies and discount pricing.

 

The 2019 surge gave way to the inevitable 2020 drop when domains came up for renewal. Since January of this year, the domain has shown steady growth.

 

Usage

 

Anecdotally, it seems that .live domain name has done well with live streamers and similar influencers. Its a good domain name for anyone streaming or producing video content.

 

Pandalytics, a DomainsBot service that tracks domain usage, calculates that about 53,000 .live domains are developed. Analytics services like Pandalytics use varying data methodologies and they rarely match each other. But its helpful to compare .live to the domains directly above and below it in nTLDStatsDUM rankings: .work and .bar. Both .work and .bar have similar first-year pricing strategies.

 

.Work has about the same number of registered domains as .live, and Pandalytics calculates roughly 58,000 are developed.

 

.Bar has about 100,000 fewer domains, and Pandlytics counts only 5,000 developed domains.

 

Some people register .live domains to redirect them to pages on streaming and video platforms, which also shows up in the numbers. Pandalytics calculates 30,000 .live redirects, compared to 21,000 for .work and 16,000 for .bar. (Of course, not all redirects are to active sites. Many of them are to parked pages and for-sale landers.)

 

More recently, c.live sold for $28,500 on Sedo last year and is used by a live streaming app.

 

You can still get good .live domains on the aftermarket for reasonable prices: tech.live sold for only $560 in March. But dont forget premium renewals on most of the good domains.
