please merge .dd into this article as a one-liner ("before 1989 east german sites could have used .dd instead but it was never used")— Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) 03:46, 3 July 2007 (UTC)
Most used TLDs?
quote from this page: .de is currently the second most popular ccTLD in terms of number of registrations, after .cn, and is third after .com and .cn among all TLDs.
quote from .uk: As of July 2008, it is the fifth most popular top-level domain worldwide (after .com, .cn, .de and .net), with over 7 million registrations.
It is now possible to get ß-domains

During several automated bot runs the following external link was found to be unavailable. Please check if the link is in fact down and fix or remove it in that case!
Moved from article:
Since September 2011, there are several domain name registrars offering registrations under the domain .com.de, which is very similar to some official country code second-level domains, like .com.au, .com.cn, or .com.pl for instance. Technically, however, .com.de isn't a ccSLD, but a conventional subdomain. It is operated by the Independent Domain Registry CentralNic., which also operates its own WHOIS service to publish domain name information.
- I understand what you mean, but I really think the fact that .com.de isn't an official country code second-level domain should be included here. It's just to similar to official ccSLDs, like the examples in that section. What do you think about this alternate version:
- Since September 2011, there are several domain name registrars offering registrations under the domain .com.de, which is very similar to some official country code second-level domains, like .com.au, .com.cn, or .com.pl for instance. Technically, however, .com.de isn't a ccSLD, but a conventional subdomain. It's not operated by DENIC, but by an Independent Domain Registry.
- It is effectively advertising as there is no independent source cited and the link is to that of CentralNic. Could any of you get DENIC's opinion on this? Jmccormac (talk) 21:15, 9 June 2012 (UTC)
