July 27, 2010  »  StatisticsOne Comment

WebHosting.Info’s Country-wise Total Domains, aggregates weekly data from all ICANN accredited registrars. Below it is edited for African nations. The first column shows the nation’s world-wide rank, “Total Domains” are the number of ccTLD’s for a given nation, Gain/Loss/Net are based on weekly changes in the number of registered domains.
