European ccTLDs Passed 64 Million Domains, Growth Slower, Reports CENTR

CENTR, the European ccTLD organization, has published its biannual statistics report on the state of the domain name industry with a European ccTLD focus. From the report:

"European ccTLDs closed April 2013 with just over 64 million domains under management. Over the 12 months preceding, overall net growth was 6.7% — an increase of around 4 million domains. This growth however, is a lower rate compared with that of the same period in the year before. This could be most likely explained by factors such as the maturing ccTLD market in Europe (particularly among the larger Operators) as well as the ongoing financial crisis. Renewal rates remain consistent over the past 3 years at around 79% on the whole and actually increasing marginally in some zones."
