For Australia, with a population of just over 20 million, reaching one million domain registrations is pretty impressive.
Says Adrian Kinderis, Managing Director of AusRegistry, the organization in charge of the domain, “Small to medium business owners are responsible for the majority of the .au domain name registrations.”
Here’s the press release.
Also, this rate of growth should put Australia into the top 10 list of the most popular ccTLDs in terms of registrations. If not now, probably sometime in 2008.
