I knew that .com was celebrating its 30th anniversary / birthday, but I did not realize (or think about) that .net has also been around for 30 years. In celebration of this, Verisign (the company that operates the .net registry) published the infographic below with some neat facts about .net and .net domain names.
Four of the more interesting call outs in the infographic include the following:
- Largest public sale was Mobile.net for $500,000
- 15 million .net domain names registered
- Find was the most common keyword in .net domain names registered in 2015
- There are 63 registered .net domain names that contain the maximum 63 characters
