Strong Q1-2023 Report Gives .ART Registry Another Good Reason to Celebrate 6th Birthday This Week  

The .ART domain registry celebrates their 6th anniversary Wednesday (May 10, 2023) and they have multiple reasons to mark the occasion. One of the biggest is the fast growth rate for the TLD that is reflected in numbers released in their Q1-2023 report (.pdf file). .ART reported a 27% increase in domain registrations over Q1-2022, bringing their total number of domains 
under management to 240,675.

The report noted "This growth is supported by high-quality registrations from renowned 
museums and art institutions, as well as an impressive 1st-year renewal rate of 80% for premium names. 1,276 Premium .ART Names were sold in the opening quarter of the year, including word.art, pet.art and auction.art to name a few. Those premium sales accounted for 70% of registry revenue.  

Another highlight of Q1-2023 was the launch of a new program designed to allow .ART domain owners to get their matching ENS names

As part of the birthday celebration, .ART released a new YouTube video to spotlight some of the high profile users that now have a home in .ART domains:
