.Guru(s) Galore: New Top-Level Domain Passes 50K Registrations
Nevermind that the label/title “guru” has been getting mocked for years.
That’s not stopping anyone from registering domains using the new .guru top-level domain (gTLD). In fact, according to nTLDStats.com, .guru recently became the first of the new gTLDs to pass 50,000 registrations.
That puts it ahead of the far less annoying .berlin, .photography, .email and .link, all of which round out the top five most popular new domains.
Domain Incite reports that .guru just passed the 50,000 mark on Wednesday, if you exclude some infrastructural domains. And it reached this level in just 78 days.
