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

CentralNic surged back into the top 10 for monthly registrations with a strong performance at its Internet BS registrar. Other than that, there’s not much noteworthy this month…other than strong numbers for .com registrations overall.

Here’s how registrars did in terms of new .com registrations in May:

1.* (NYSE: GDDY) 1,012,078 (943,953 in April)
