Development of Domains

Previously we looked at development of 300 random five digit domains that start with zero.

Here is a graph of the results for "'s"

And here is a graph of results for "'s"

A couple of things here are interesting to note.  One is that there are more domains not being used among the "'s", and fewer being parked, than with the domains starting with a "1".  This perhaps reflects that domains starting with a "0" are less likely to receive traffic.

Another thing that was unexpected was that there were more developed Asian sites among the "'s" than among the "'s."  I would have expected the numbers to be reversed.  Perhaps its just a fluke in the random numbers selected, and it will be interesting to see if it holds up with a new random sample.

One thing that was not surprising was that Marchex (MCHX) was the biggest holder in both the "" and "" space.
