Domain Name Industry Brief Methodology

The data presented in this brief for ccTLDs, including quarter-over-quarter and year-over-year metrics, reflects the 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 of the ccTLDs. In addition, the data available for this brief may not include data for all of the 302 ccTLD extensions that are delegated to the root, and includes only the data available at the time of the preparation of this brief.

For gTLD and ccTLD data cited with Zooknic as a source, the Zooknic analysis uses a comparison of domain name root zone file changes supplemented with Whois data on a statistical sample of domain names, which lists the registrar responsible for a particular domain name, and the location of the registrant. The data has a margin of error based on the sample size and market size. The ccTLD data is based on analysis of root zone files. For more information, see ZookNIC.com.
