The gTLD Marketplace Health Index presents statistics and trends related to generic top-level domains. ICANN intends to publish these statistics biannually to track progress against its goal of supporting the evolution of the domain name marketplace to be robust, stable, and trusted.

Following the close of the public comment period, ICANN will work with a group of community volunteers to further refine the Index.
