Uk Registry Continues to Grow Strongly

Nominet will today release figures showing that .uk registrations grew by 10.5% over the past 12 months, bringing the total number of domains to 9.7 million by the end of September 2011. .uk also maintains its position as the world’s second largest country code registry after Germany’s .de. The figures are published in the latest edition of Nominet’s annual study of the domain name industry, which is formally launched at a conference of Internet professionals in London today.

The Domain Business report shows that preference for .uk remains strong with eighty one percent of those surveyed saying they prefer .uk sites when presented with a choice of a .uk or .com in search results. The main reasons given were that it would be more likely to be a UK based company and have more relevance with prices in sterling and acceptable delivery charges.

The report also shows that the global market for domain names is healthy and growing with an increase of 9.5% this year, taking the total number of domains globally to 218 million, an increase of 19 million. Generic Top Level Domains now make up 60% of the market while 39% are country code Top Level Domains.

Commenting on the report, Lesley Cowley OBE, Chief Executive of Nominet, said: “Nominet is proud to continue to operate one of the world’s largest Internet domain name registries and the good news is that the .uk space continues to go from strength to strength. The register was at 9.7 million domains at the end of September 2011 and we expect it to reach 10 million in the early months of next year. As business sites now account for more than three million .uk websites it is impossible to ignore the vital role that the .uk space plays in the national digital economy.”

Phil Kingsland, Director of Marketing and Communications at Nominet, added: “We are pleased to see that the public have such confidence in .uk and we continue to focus on working closely with global and domestic groups to ensure that it remains a safe and secure environment in which to do business. Businesses in the UK recognise that the values of status and trust that .uk stands for positively contribute to the consumer perception of their company online. In looking to establish a brand that customers can have confidence in, buying into the .uk space is a valuable step.”
