Verisign (the administrator of the .com and .net domain registries) has released their latest quarterly Domain Name Industry Brief covering the 2nd quarter or 2017. The company announced that approximately 1.3 million domain name registrations were added to the internet in 2Q-2017, bringing the total number of domain name registrations to approximately 331.9 million across all top-level domains (TLDs) as of June 30, 2017 .

Over the past year 6.7 million domains have been added, an annual growth rate 2.1%. Country code domains (ccTLDS) had a slightly higher growth rate than the overall market. Total ccTLD registrations stood at approximately 144.2 million at the end of 2Q-2017, a 2.6% increase year over year.

Verisign's .com and .net TLDs had a combined total of approximately 144.3 million domain name registrations at the end of 2Q-2017 - a 0.8% increase year over year. As of June 30, 2017 , the .com domain name base totaled 129.2 million domain name registrations (the most, by far, of any TLD), while the .net domain name base totaled 15.1 million.
