The reason behind new .nl registrations
SIDN reports a total of 450,000 new registrations for the first half of 2023. However, there were more cancellations than in the same period in 2022. The net growth amounts to 20,000 domain names. You can find all the figures here.
Real estate and coaching driving the trend
Analysis by SIDN indicates that domain names related to real estate and coaching have been registered relatively often. The words 'studio' and 'design' are popular choices. It is also noteworthy that most registrations occurred in May and June.
Number of cancellations on the rise
The number of cancellations was 40,000 higher than in the first half of 2022. While not definitively proven, the assumption is that inflation has influenced the number of cancellations. Additionally, the price increase of subscription costs for holders of multiple domain names could be a reason for name cancellations.
Not all of these are new names. Re-registration of a cancelled domain name or an expired registration occurs quite frequently. Various national and international entities specialize in this. On one hand, the domain name itself is commercially appealing, and on the other hand, there is value from visitor traffic that the domain name still receives.
Easily find a name
Through the special search function on Dovendi.com, you can easily search for a domain name offered by various parties. This largely involves previously registered names.
