New Domain Name Registrations Fall 15%

September 21, 2009 in News

The newly release VeriSign Domain Report shows that the number of new domain name registrations fell 15% in the second quarter of 2009 compared to the same quarter in 2008 (14% from the first quarter).

However, the report also shows that overall base of registered domain names rose 1% up to 184 million registered domain names compared to quarter 1 of 2009 and up 9% compared to the same quarter in 2008. This overall increase is likely due to the increase in country code domain registrations, which rose 14% over the last year.

VeriSign attributes the decline in new registrations to seasonality, with Q2 typically being lower in new registrations than Q1, and overall weak economic conditions.
According to the report, .com continues to have the highest overall registration base, followed by .cn (China), .de (Germany), .net, .org, .uk, .info, .nl (Netherlands), .eu (European Union), and .biz.
