from www.domains.com – In a story published by Xbiz.com today, Stuart Lawley CEO of ICM Registry the company that operates the .XXX registry, renewal rates of .XXX domain names “are exactly in line, or in many cases, ahead of those enjoyed by other registries”

.Com domains tradtionally run around 73% renewal rates and one of the newest extensions, .Co are running right around 70%.

Lawley said that “Around 9% of original registrations were for multiple years.”

Of the 225,000 domains Lawley says are “under management” that would include the 80,000 or so 10 year blocks that ICM sold to trademark holders for a one time fee.

Additionally we know there are a substantial number of defensive .XXX registrations that are paid on an annual basis which we can assume will have almost a 100% renewal rate.

Lawley, told xBiz that .XXX numbers have “comfortably exceeded the company’s sales expectations — based on the figures it communicated back in 2003 and 2004 in its original application to ICANN”.

“We had forecast around 25,000-40,000 registrations by now and a total of 125,000 after five years and we currently have more than 225,000 names under management,”
