Epik lost almost 50,000 domains under management in June, dropping below half a million domains for the first time since 2019, according to just-published registry transaction reports.

The registrar ended the month with 461,822 DUM, down from 511,028 in May and an August 2022 peak of 808,160.

The transfer exodus continued in the month, which was the first month Epik was operating under new management, having paid off most of its debts following its financial scandal.

The company saw a net transfer figure of -24,789 domains, with only 667 inbound transfers.

Newly registered domains recovered slightly, moving back into four figures after a couple of months, ending June at 3,391, still a long way off pre-scandal levels.

    I’m one of the 3,391 people that registered new names with them recently. In my experience, I have seen nothing but a major improvement since the new management. They fixed a problem I had and I was very thankful for what they did. Since Google Domains is now gone, I have returned to Epik. To me, it is the closest in UI, domain features and service to Google Domains
