    The DomainWire Global TLD Stat Report Q4/2017 has been published. The report covers the global status and registration trends in all top-level domains

    Highlights from the report:

    • Growth in the global domain market was recorded at 1.2% YOY at the end of 2017, bringing total recorded domains to an estimated 331 million.
    • The European ccTLD market saw a stabilisation after a long-term slowdown in growth. Most ccTLDs have converged to a median of 3.0% annually.
    • European-based ccTLDs make up around 59% of all locally registered domains and have outpaced gTLD growth in the region. Countries where ccTLD market share increased the most were the UK (+2.3%), Lithuania (+1.9%), Sweden (+1.1%), Iceland (+1.0%) and Ireland (+0.8%).
    • 1 in 3 gTLDs contracted over 2017. Of the larger legacy gTLDs, .com and .info were the only ones to maintain consistent positive growth over the past 12 months, with other long-standing gTLDs in this category in decline.
    • .com grew 3.6% over 2017 and has around 70% of the global gTLD market – a figure which has not changed significantly since the roll out of new gTLDs began.
