After 30 Years French and Italian ccTLDs Join the 3 Million Registrations

10th Jan 2017 19:13

December saw two European ccTLDs hit the 3 million registrations mark with the .fr and .it ccTLDs reaching the milestone around a week apart. As with most ccTLDs, registration numbers have grown as internet usage increases.

For .it, whose growth has broadly mirrored that of .fr, it took 18 years until 2005 to reach one million domain registrations and then 5 years later in 2010 the 2 millionth. Registration growth slowed somewhat for the next million taking six years, reflecting that more people and businesses are online, and have registered their domain names.

.fr and .it are essential for any European business. Email to secure your trademarks today.
