Weblog Growth Drives Domain Registrations

The Web-log phenomenon is helping to drive near-record growth in Internet Web domains. Netcraft, a United Kingdom-based Internet research and analytics company, said its latest tally of Web site host names showed a gain of 2.76 million addresses in July from last month. The total number of Web sites identified by the company was 67.5 million. The company attributed the growth to factors including the increasing use of Web sites by small businesses, the growth of Web logs and their publishers’ purchasing domains for branding, and strong sales of online advertising which are prompting speculators to register names they think may have value for buyers.
