Analyzing new top level domain registrations by country (Part 3: the Geos)

Some nTLDs are concentrated in a single country (and use transparent whois): .RIO (100%), .KYOTO (99.8%), .KOELN (97.8%), .HAMBURG (97.7%), and .NYC (97.3%). Note: With residency requirements for .NYC, a broad country profile is impossible. Other GEOs are much more dispersed (or else use whois privacy more frequently). For instance, visible home-country registrations for .ISTANBUL and .MELBOURNE constitute only 82.1% and 84.3%, respectively. Even more extreme, .IRISH is found with Ireland listed in whois records only 51.7% of the time. For .IRISH, the remainder would belong mainly to the UK, I imagine – even though the suffix doesn’t rank among the top 100 there.
