The Internet Now Has 100 Million Domain Names

So, the Internet has hit 100,000,000 domain names, which is double the 50,000,000 that existed in 2004.  That comes from the Netcraft Web Server Survey.  You can find all the details here.

Listed below are links to weblogs that reference The Internet Now Has 100 Million Domain Names:


Netcraft has indicated that there are over 100 million web sites in its survey. That's not equivalent to 100 million domain names. Many (most?) domain names don't run a publicly accessible web server on port 80. What's more, Netcraft doesn't query every site on the Internet. So, yes, while it's true that there are 100 million domain names, that number was likely eclipsed long ago, and the actual number is no doubt far greater.
