20% increase in domain registrations

The number of new domains in february were 672 compared to 558 in february 2010, giving an increase of about 20%. The number of deleted domains were 225 compared to 200 in february 2010. The net increase in domains in february this year is about 447 domains compared to 358 in february 2010. This is a nice surprise for ISNIC and the Internet community in Iceland.

A registration of a domain is often the first step of realizing a new idea, a plan or a promise of something that is going to be. An increase in domain registrations might therefore be viewed as a strong sign of more optimism in Iceland. We wish the new 672 .is-domains registered in february all the best.
