The World Wide Web continues to grow bigger and bigger. Today’s chart illustrates the growth of registered domain names since 2007.

By the end of 2012, more than 252m domains had been registered worldwide. That is a 12 percent increase over the end of 2011.

Interestingly, the growth of registered domain names is currently re-accelerating after a brief slowdown in 2009 and 2010.

The most common top-level domain remains .com with more than 100 million registered domains, followed by .de (Germany), .net and .uk (United Kingdom).
