Godaddy.com, which is the world’s largest domain name registrar (having the most domain names under management) is no longer the number 1 domain name registrar for new gTLD domains.

A China based domain registrar, Chengdu West Dimension Digital Technology Co., Ltd. whose website is West.cn has passed Godaddy when it comes to domain name registrars for new gTLD domain names.
Chengdu West has over 1,070,000 new gTLD’s domain names registered through representing 11.83% of all new gTLD registrations while Godaddy has over 953,000 new gTLD registered through it representing 10.56% of all new registered gTLD’s.
Chengdu West again according to ntldstats.com has sold more than 100,000 domain names in four new gTLD’s extensions:
TLD Domains % of extension
1. .xyz 346,759 32.43 %
2. .top 266,372 24.91 %
3. .win 184,434 17.25 %
4. .wang 132,222 12.36 %
Interesting, overall the three new gTLD domain name extensions in terms of number of registrations are the same as the top 3 of Chengdu:
