Internet Domain Names Reach 184 Million
People have been talking about the impending shortage of domain names - a crisis we could face as early as next year. According to figures released by VeriSign for Q2,2009, the number of top-level domain (TLD) names reached 184 million.
This represents a 1 percent increase over Q1′09 and growth of 9% over the same quarter of last year.
During the second quarter, Country Code TLDs (ccTLDs) rose by 14% year over year to 74.4 million domain names - a total that represents a 1% rise from Q1′09. The base of ccTLDs domain names was impacted by a loss in base for ‘.cn’ and ‘.eu’. In terms of total registrations, ‘.com’ remains the most popular TLD category, followed by ‘.cn’ (China), ‘.de’ (Germany) and ‘.net’. This mix remains unchanged from last quarter.
The overall base of ‘.com’ and ‘.net’ domain names grew to 93.5 million domain names during Q2′09. This represents a 1% increase over Q1′09, a 7% increase over the same quarter of the previous year, and a 28% increase over Q2′07.
