Websites using .GR and .COM domain extensions are missing out on thousands of unique visitors trying to find their sites.
In the following report we see the .GR.COM domains that were visited instead of the equivalent .GR / .COM.GR and .COM developed websites. Users tried to type, or browsers auto-completed the urls for them and guided them to a similar .GR.COM name.
The purpose of this report is to demonstrate the traffic to .GR.COM domains, and how registering your name under .GR.COM could significantly increase the traffic to your primary domain name.
The two reports (overview and detailed) below are only part of the 143,894 hostnames that were used and brought 544,213 visits to the .GR.COM registry from 05-June-2008 to 19-Aug-2009 and from 24-Nov-2010 to 19-Jan-2011.
The equivalent developed websites under .gr/.com.gr or .com are losing a significant amount of traffic. This can be seen at the TOP 1000 hostnames of the report and grows even more from 1,001 - 143,894 hostnames that are not visible in this report.
We at GR.COM Registry encourage registrants to build websites on our domains, but these results put forward a strong case for domain owners to register their name under .gr.com if only to redirect it to their current primary address and enjoy the benefits of added traffic.
