Porkbun, the domain registrar known for its affordability and customer-centric approach, has achieved a significant milestone by surpassing 2 million domains under management. This achievement marks a notable acceleration in the company’s growth, having taken seven years to reach its first million domains and just two years to double that number.

Founded in 2015, Porkbun has carved out a niche in the domain registration market by offering simple, transparent, and cost-effective services. The company’s initial focus was on selling domains within the extensions owned by its parent company, Top Level Design, rather than the more common .com domains. This strategy has paid off, particularly with new generic top-level domains (TLDs) such as .xyz and .live, where Porkbun has seen significant success.

A Path to Success

Porkbun’s journey to this milestone has been fueled by its commitment to providing an exceptional customer experience. The registrar has gained popularity among technical developers and budget-conscious customers who appreciate the simplicity and value Porkbun offers. This customer base has been instrumental in spreading the word about Porkbun, contributing to its rapid growth.

Raymond King, CEO of Porkbun, reflected on the company’s approach:

Since the early stage of our company was focused on building a successful registry, which has since been acquired, Porkbun was able to grow naturally and without the same pressure. We didn’t set out to monetize Porkbun, but instead built the exact domain registrar that we wanted to use ourselves.”

Customer-Centric Growth

Porkbun’s model emphasizes customer satisfaction and value. Each domain registered through Porkbun comes with a suite of free features, including WHOIS privacy, SSL certificates, and web and email hosting trials. This commitment to providing value without extra costs has distinguished Porkbun from other registrars.

The company’s dedication to quality service is further evidenced by its top ranking as the #1 domain registrar by USA Today for 2023 and 2024. Porkbun’s support team, based entirely in the USA, offers live customer support via phone, chat, and email, ensuring that customers receive prompt and personalized assistance.

Looking Forward

The rapid growth and success of Porkbun have positioned it as a formidable player in the domain registration industry. Currently, Porkbun ranks as the 9th largest new TLD registrar globally and the 20th largest registrar for ICANN-accredited TLDs. The company continues to innovate, offering diverse domain options and practical solutions that cater to a wide range of customers, from businesses and tech professionals to bloggers and artists.

Rachel Sterling, Chief Marketing Officer at Identity Digital, praised Porkbun’s achievement:

Porkbun reaching 2 million domain names in a short period of time is impressive. Their creativity and ingenuity in offering customers diverse options and practical solutions for customers is exciting.


As Porkbun celebrates this milestone, the company remains focused on its mission to make domain registration simple, affordable, and enjoyable. With a strong foundation and a dedicated customer base, Porkbun is well-positioned for continued growth and success in the future.
