Posted on 5.17.2016

nTLDStats revealed this morning that the domain is the new record holder for registrations in 1 hour, 12 hours and 24 hours after general availability. At the time of writing, there were 115,000 .VIP registrations.

The domain looks to be quite popular in China - in fact, the top five registars of the extension are all Chinese and account for 95,000 of the .VIP registrations.

Domain Name Wire suggested that the domain's initial success was likely a result of low premium prices on a number of its best domains, and because premiums are only charged the first year of registration.
