Latest Quarterly Verisign Report Shows Continued Growth in Worldwide Domain Registrations - Total Names Across All TLDs Rose Nearly 7% Year Over Year

Verisign, the administrator of the .com and .net registries has issued their latest quarterly Domain Name Industry Brief covering the 3rd quarter of 2014. Always a treasure trove of interesting information, the latest brief reveals that 3Q-2014 closed with a base of 284 million domain name registrations across all top-level domains (TLDs). That is over 18 million more than were registered at this time year ago, reflecting healthy year over year growth of nearly 7%. The number of registered domains grew by 4 million over the previous quarter.

The ccTLDs grew even faster than the overall market, jumping 10.7% year over year ending 3Q-2014 with 132.1 million registrations. Despite the onslaught of new gTLDs in 2014, the world's most popular extension, .com


continued to grow, albeit at a slower percentage rate than the market as a whole. The .coms rose from 112 million domains at the start of 2014 to 114.9 million at the end of 3Q-2014, a 2.6% increase over those 9 months.

In addition to the full Domain Name Industry Brief (.pdf file), Verisign also summed up its 3Q-2014 highlights in this infographic.
