Domain Name Industry Brief Methodology

The data presented in this brief, including quarter-over-quarter and year-over-year metrics, reflects information available to Verisign at the time of this brief and may incorporate changes and adjustments to previously reported periods based on additional information received since the date of such prior reports, so as to more accurately reflect the growth rate of domain name registrations. In addition, the data available for this brief may not include data for all of the 308 ccTLD extensions that are delegated to the root zone, and includes only the data available at the time of the preparation of this brief. Beginning with Vol. 19, Issue 1 of The Domain Name Industry Brief, the .tk, .cf, .ga, .gq and .ml ccTLDs have been excluded from all applicable calculations. The historical data has been adjusted from Vol. 19, Issue 1 forward.

For generic TLD and ccTLD data cited with ZookNIC as a source, the ZookNIC analysis uses a comparison of domain name root zone file changes supplemented with other authoritative data sources and independent approximations. For more information, see ZookNIC.com.
