by domisfera (Stats, .cn (China), .de (Germany))
Therefore China is already the world’s largest ccTLD, with 12,364,615 domains. We must remember that in December 2006 the situation was as follows:
1. Germany (.de): 10,323,544
2. United Kingdom (. uk): 5,463,972
3. Europe (. eu): 2,386,620
4. Netherlands (. nl): 2,158,200
5. China (. cn): 1,296,935
The promotion began on March 7, 2007 consisting of putting the new .cn domain registered to 1 yuan (0.13$) has proved its worth, with quarterly growth above 20%. In less than two years has multiplied almost x10 total domains registered and has dislodged the .de domains from the top, a place monopolized by the German ccTLD for many years.
