The April issue of the Industry Report is dedicated to the individual and corporate holders of domain names under the .fr TLD. Facts highlighted include the following:
- In February 2013, almost 40% of the domain names under the .fr TLD were held by individuals, a figure which has doubled in 6 years – individuals only represented 20.7% in January 2007;
- One in every two domain names is filed by an individual;
- In 2012, the portfolio of individual holders of domain names under the .fr TLD grew by 13%, while that of corporate holders increased by 16%. Previously the opposite was true, i.e. the growth rate of the stock of domain names held by individuals was higher than that for corporate holders.
