Verisign
Says 2019 Ended With Over 362 Million Domains
Registered Worldwide – .Com Outperformed Market
but .Net Continued Slide

Verisign
has released their latest quarterly Domain
Name Industry Brief
(.pdf
file) covering the 4th quarter of
2019
. The new report revealed
that at the end of the quarter,
total domain registrations across all
TLDs
had reached 362.3
million
worldwide. That is an increase
of 13.5 million domains from
the same point a year earlier, a 3.9%
rise
.  

Verisign
administers several Top Level
Domain, including the world’s most
popular TLD, .com, as well as
the second most popular gTLD, .net.
They reported total .com
registrations reached 145.4
million
at the end of 4Q-2019, outperforming
the overall market with a 4.6%
rise
year over year. It remained
a different story for .net though as
that 

 

TLD
continued to decline. .Net slid
4.3% from 14 million a
year earlier to 13.4 million registrations
at the end of 4Q-2019.

ccTLD
(country code TLD) registrations
underperformed the overall market
but that category did show an
increase, adding 3.3 million
registrations in 2019 to close the
year with 157.6 million
domains, a 2.1% rise year
over year.

Thanks
to a surge in 4Q registrations,
new gTLDs
jumped 23.2%
year over year to close 4Q-2019 with
29.3 million
registrations. Of
the 5.5 million domains added
over 2019, 5.3 million were
registered in the final quarter
of the year! Without that late
charge, new gTLDs would have shown
virtually no growth from the
previous year.
