Internet domain name map of the world: US, UK, DE rule, Tuvalu missing. [slate.com]
On traditional maps of the world, Russia, Canada, China, and India loom large. On this map, though, the size of each country corresponds to the estimated number of websites registered there. The United States, unsurprisingly, is home to the largest number of registered Internet domains. Perhaps less predictably, Germany ranks a solid second, ahead of the United Kingdom. China is fourth despite the world’s largest online population, with only one registered domain per 40 Internet users, indicating that far fewer Chinese people create websites than visit them. The United States, in contrast, has about one domain registration for every three Internet users.
