Domain names continue to show growth across the Internet, according to
the second quarter 2009 Domain Name Industry Brief published by
VeriSign, Inc. (NASDAQ: VRSN), the trusted provider of Internet
infrastructure services for the networked world.
The second quarter of 2009 ended with a total base of 184 million
domain name registrations across all of the Top Level Domains (TLDs).
This represents a one percent increase over the first quarter of 2009
and growth of nine percent over the same quarter of last year.
During the second quarter, Country Code TLDs (ccTLDs) rose by 14
percent year over year to 74.4 million domain names – a total that
represents a one percent rise from the first quarter of 2009. 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 the second quarter of 2009. This represents a one
percent increase over the first quarter of 2009, a seven percent
increase over the same quarter of the previous year, and a 28 percent
increase over the second quarter of 2007.
