ICANN has published the latest official data from Verisign (NASDAQ: VRSN) about the .com namespace. This registrar-by-registrar report covers December 2021.

A registrar called Conbin Information Systems jumped into the charts for monthly registrations. I assume this was a bulk deal. Here’s how registrars did in terms of new .com registrations in December:

1.* (NYSE: GDDY) 720,658 (803,348 in November)
2. Namecheap Inc. 257,979 (270,852)

4. Alibaba 180,953 (167,636)
5. Google Inc. (NASDAQ: GOOGL) 139,030 (150,051)
