Today we announce some crazy statistics which has recently emerged regarding domain names registration, and they confirm one thing : The internet is endless !
Currently, almost 330 million domain names were recorded and obviously this number will continue its growth for the following years. Since the creation of the first domain name in 1985 the average growth is about 10.3 million domain per year, which means that the half billion should be reached in less than 16 years !
Moreover this statistic is elaborated from an average which has never been homogeneous comparing the number of domains registration between the 80's and today, there has been a strong growth over the last decade. As explained by Verisign's survey "Domain name registrations have grown by 21 million, or 6.8 percent, year over year" since the 4th quarter of 2015.
Concerning the composition of these 330 million domains, the .com represents more than a third, with 127 million. We have also noticed that there 6.6 million .xyz domain names were recorded, which still remains an uncleared mystery as it doesn't have any specific meaning ... :) On the planetary scale the proportion represents one domain name for 23 inhabitants.
By the way, if you don't have one yet, you can register your .com domain name here :)
