2014 Edition - French Domain Industry Report

This month’s issue of the Afnic Industry Report on Domain Names highlights the key figures and trends for the global domain name market in 2013. The April issue indicates that:

  • at year-end 2013, there were 275 million domain names, 55% of which were gTLDs and 45% were ccTLDs;
  • the ccTLDs doped by the .cn (China, +70%) and TLDs marketed in the so-called “free” mode grew faster than the gTLDs, which have probably already been faced with disposals;
  • the “Top 3” in terms of the performance of gTLDs in 2013 were .mobi, .biz and .cat;
