It seems that the global crisis has not arrived at the Mexican virtual world. At least, it is what NIC Mexico stats demonstrate. The report shows that domains acquisition with purposes of creating .MX web pages was increased in 20.6% in the first quarter of this year, comparing to the same period of 2008.
The growth of .MX registrations is eight percentage points greater than the world’s market growth rate (12%), which globally result in 183 millions of domains, at the end of last March.
In addition, according to the telecommunications sector of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and the Development (OCDE), between 1998 and 2006, the .MX domain was the one with the larger growth in its annual rate, among member countries, with an average over to 65%.
Last February, .MX domain celebrated 20 years of its creation. On that month, it was projected a tough year because of the economic recession impact, according to NIC Mexico CEO Oscar Robles.
At a global level, the 240 national domain names had a 18% growth comparing to the first months of last year; where codes from China, Germany, United Kingdom, Holland, Europe Union, Russia, Argentina, Italy, Brazil and United States concentrated 64% of international demand.
On the other hand, generic domains (.com y .net), which concentrate around half of the global market demand, had their first fall in history (2%), in respect for last year.
