CENTR releases bi-annual domain report
CENTR released the latest issue of its domain name "Stat Report", focusing on country-code top-level domains within Europe. The report showed that Germany continues to lead the ccTLD market with over 15 million dot-de domains, followed by the UK with just over 10 million. Meanwhile, dot-co showed the fastest growth of any ccTLD over the past 12 months, growing by an extraordinary 48 percent (compared to 15-17 percent for the four next largest growth registries). Around 78 percent of domains registered under ccTLDs are renewed each year, compared to 73 percent for dot-coms, the report noted.
