Number of new domains by registrars in the past 6 months

According to ipWalk, DomainCar, a small Panamanian company, has joined the elite of companies who own more than 1 mln domain names, growing faster than GoDaddy over the last 6 months. Going to My-Name-Server.com reveals a standard domain parking page with somewhat relevant ads, and that’s the current business model of the Panamanian company.
