A Look at the Current State of ccTLDs, Particularly in Europe

European ccTLDs have passed 67 million registrations in total at a net growth of 0.7% over the past quarter, according to the new DomainWire report by Council of European National Top level Domain Registries (CENTR).

According to the report, top 20 largest ccTLDs represent roughly 82% of all ccTLD registrations globally and 38% of all domain names globally (gTLDs, ccTLDs, etc). The ccTLD for Tokelau (.tk) has the largest zone with 28 million reported domain names. However, it offers mostly free domains on a global level and derives revenue on a fundamentally different business model than traditional ccTLDs. From those found in the top 20 list, the table (below) shows some of the highest growth ccTLDs observed in the past quarter. Colombia (.co) saw the highest growth with 8.4% (around 142k domains) for this quarter.
