Verisign recently published an interesting report, which stated that 4 million domain names were added to the Internet during Q4 2014. This brings the total number of registered domain names to a whopping 288 million worldwide across all top-level domains (TLDs)—that’s a growth rate of 1.3% in just one quarter. What’s equally (or perhaps even more) impressive is that .com/.net registrations increased by 8.2 million in Q4 of both 2013 and 2014 and to date, account for 131.6 million of all TLD registrations (in aggregate). Of that 131.6 million, 115.6 million are .com and 15.0 million are .net. And while we’re talking about .com… we also wanted to mention that the Internet’s most recognized top-level domain turned 30 this year—Happy 30th .COM!
