My survey data will supplement ICANN's official list
(<http://www.icann.org/registrars/accredited-list.html>) -- which, as
you know, reports only country and accredited TLD information, not
information about related services, support options, etc.

I'll collect survey data during August, and in early September I plan to
analyze and report results.  I'll be sure to report raw data too, to let
others continue this work with their own analyses.

I very much appreciate submissions from you and from other registrars.
I realize the survey looks a bit long, but in my testing, most users can
fill it out in 5-10 minutes.

The web site for this project is

The survey itself is at

In the coming months, I'll also be updating other reports likely of
interest to registrars -- including last year's "Alternative
Perspectives on Registrar Market Share"
(<http://cyber.law.harvard.edu/people/edelman/registrar-choice/>) as
well as "Domains Reregistered for Distribution of Unrelated Content: A
Case Study of 'Tina's Free Live Webcam'"
