The .ASIA IDN Landrush has been extended and will now close on October 29, 2011.
The number of active .IN domains has passed 1 million. The potential for growth is however enormous, considering that India’s 100 million Internet users are just 8% of the population. By comparison, more than 70 per cent of Indian residents are using mobile phones.

A summary by Registrar Stats would indicate that soon there will be more than 100 million .COM domains registered and active.

The .RU zone has passed 3,5 million domain registrations, and overtaken both .EU and .CN in the process. This number is excluding russian IDN’s under .РФ which itself stands strong at 900,000 registered domain.
Will New Zealand offer second level .NZ anytime soon? Probably not, however most domain liberalisations begin with a questionnaire from the TLD Registry to the domain user community.
Thus, in what could be a first move towards second level .NZ registrations, New Zealand’s Domain Name Commission questioned a group of domain users and found significant support for a simple top-level .nz domain, as an alternative to the likes of .co.nz and .org.nz. Asked to register a simple choice between “myname.nz” and “myname.co.nz”, 52 percent opted for the former.
