Donuts new gTLD .email sold 9,636 registrations yesterday, its first partial day of general availability at standard registry pricing.

The TLD became the seventh largest by volume, with 11,286 names under management.

The other four new gTLDs — all Donuts’ — that hit the same pricing threshold yesterday fared less well, with between 5,391 (.solutions) and 909 (.builders) names registered.

Here’s a bit more data from DI PRO. Click to enlarge.

A total of 26,239 new names appeared in 147 new gTLD zone files this morning, of which 22,220 (about 85%) came from these five newly available options.
