With a steep rise in the number of internet users and a surge in e-commerce transactions, the number of domain registrations a month in India doubled to 4% of all global registrations. This is the latest statistics on domain name registration estimated by the industry.
Despite this growth, we are still far behind from China where monthly domain name registrations accounts for 20-22 percent of total global registrations. The estimate came from web hosting company BigRock.
“Close to 4 per cent of all global registrations now happen from India. Over the past few months, there has been a rapid increase in domain name registrations, particularly from the country with the monthly additions rising to 2 per cent from an average of 1.5 per cent of the global registrations.”
Verisign, a US based network infrastructure company and seller of SSL certificates to online businesses claimed in its report released in the march that in December quarter of 2014, around 288 million global domain name registrations were made across all top-level domains. It was an increase of 4 million names registered in the same duration a year ago.
