Note that the .TK ccTLD is technically a country code but is marketed as a generic TLD, and quite successfully it seems. So Germany is effectively the leading ccTLD.

Interesting data points:

  • Country codes, at 129 million registrations, account for more than half of all domain names registered
  • The top 10 ccTLDs comprise 66.3% of all ccTLD registrations
  • The new wave of generic TLDs haven’t made much of impact yet in terms of registrations
