The biggest 20 domain name registrars across all ICANN

Ranking the biggest registrars by domains under management.

ICANN publishes data for every top level domain, but the data is in separate files. It would be a lot of work to compile this data across 1,000+ TLDs by hand, so we’ve never done a report showing domains across all top level domains.

But earlier this year, ICANN had to run these numbers for a unique purpose: a vote to change the registrar accreditation agreement. Voting was partly weighted based on domains under management, so ICANN ran the numbers for July 2023. It was even more helpful by combining the top five registrars into “families” since many companies own multiple registrars.


Some caveats before you dig in:

  • ICANN doesn’t get reports on ccTLDs, so country domains aren’t included in these numbers.
  • ICANN calculated the top five registrar families. After that, in cases where a registrar owns multiple registrars, we did our best to include all the registrars in one family. We surely missed some.
  • Some registrars sell domains registered through resellers, often due to consolidation. This inflates the number of DUMs the reseller gets credit for and deflates the registrar that sold them.
