The Numbers Game: Just How Dominant Are .COM Domains?
We all know that .COM domains are the most prevalent, but ever wonder how other TLDs (top-level domains) stack up against them, numbers-wise?
Well, according to Whois, as of 10/28/13 there were 111,352,755 .COM domains compared to 15,207,765 .NET domains—or over seven times as many .COM as .NET domains. When it comes to .ORG domains, the number’s even lower: 10,394,319 domains. And the total number of domains for .INFO, .BIZ and .US extensions combined was less than 11,000,000.
Bottom line: as a TLD, .COM continues to reign supreme—by a huge margin.
