SpamHaus, the guardian of domain and IP violations, also keeps track of the abusive behavior originating from a large variety of gTLDs and TLDs.

Abusive behavior of domain TLDs is calculated as the ratio of abusive domains that exist in a given TLD, to its total number of active domains.

Regardless of what domain investors might think, .XYZ is most definitely not among the 10 most abused Top Level Domains; as back as in August 2016.

For the month of October, the list shows that the most abused TLD is dot .Top.

This particular gTLD is operated by the Top Registry, and it boasts 3.8 million .Top domains.

Dot .Stream and dot .GDN complete the top 3 “medal” takers.
