International markets Drive growth. Verisign

The .Com and .Net Base and New Registrations
At the end of 2008, .com and .net experienced a seasonally slower quarter for overall
registrations as is historically the case. We also started seeing signs of slower growth
trajectories in some areas of new traditional name registrations due to the current
macro-economic environment.
During the fi rst quarter of 2009, the overall base of .com and .net domain names grew
to 92.4 million domain names. This represents a two percent increase over the fourth
quarter of 2008, a nine percent increase over the same quarter of the previous year,
and a 34 percent increase over the fi rst quarter of 2007.3
New .com and .net registrations were added at an average of approximately 2.4 million per
month in the fi rst quarter of 2009 for a total of 7.3 million new registrations in the quarter.
This 17 percent increase from the previous quarter also marked the fi rst positive growth rate
in new registrations since the fi rst quarter of 2008.
During the fi rst quarter of 2009, the growth in the number of domain names registered
was primarily driven by seasonality, as the fi rst quarter is typically the strongest quarter
for domain name registrations. In addition to seasonality, growth was driven by
continued Internet growth and adoption (including international markets)
and new
unit promotion programs.
