79 MILLION .com Domains!

According to Domain Tools, today we passed another benchmark in domain history. Over 79 million .com domains are registered, 79,000,932 to be exact. Shows that even in an economic downturn the number of available .com's to register keeps shrinking. And when you think that out of those 79 million, only 1k are NNN.com's, 10k are NNNN.com's, and 100k are NNNNN.com's, you see how truly scarce numeric domains are compared to the total number of domains that are already registered. Next stop, 80 million!
