The growth of domain name registration in the year 2016 has been on a steady increase. With 2,843 registrations and 1,537 domain renewals in July 2016, these figures are the second best figures on a monthly basis this year. There were 88 domain transfers between the NiRA Accredited Registrars. The slight increase in fresh domain name registrations could be attributed to the new price regime introduced early July 2016. The table and graph below depict the domain name registrations and renewals for the past three months period May, June and July 2014, 2015 and 2016 across the years.
The total domain names count from January to July 2016 include 17,809 registrations and 10,808 renewals.
