It is hard to believe that only 20 years ago there were less than 500 .com domain names registered. What is even harder to believe is the number of registered .coms has grown close to 100,000,000. If only I could go back in time and register some high value domain names...but with my luck the this whole Internet thing would have never taken off. Any way, enjoy this infographic that displays some pretty fascinating information about domain names.

    Pretty interesting info-graphic. It's really neat to see the numbers, puts it into perspective.

    The numbers seem a little out of date. Austria for example has just registered its 1 millionth domainname in January 2011... In the chart its filed with 200k domainnames ... That's a pretty big difference
