Public Interest Registry, which operates .org, today confirmed continued strong registration growth of .org domain names.
Total domains under management eclipsed 9 million on March 2 and ended at 9.2 million at the end of the first half of the year.
The company’s .Org “Dashboard Report” shows a 10.1% increase in domains under management for the first half of the year. That compares to 9.7% growth in 2010.
The report also shows a graph for domains under management that shows lower increases and is probably comparing the beginning and ending of the half. It shows 4% growth for .org, which is less than that of .net, .com, .info, and .mobi, but higher than .biz (which showed a loss).
