After not having posted registration figures for at least four months, CNNIC, the China Internet Network Information Center, has finally updated its figures to show they have regained the number one ccTLD ranking from .DE (Germany).
According to the latest figures, there were 13,680,727 domain name registrations as of 30 November compared to 13,325,300 .DE registrations as of 13 December according to the DENIC website.
Registration figures for CNNIC were dropping significantly, likely to be as a result of the ending of a promotion CNNIC were running in 2008. However it appears they are once again on an upward trend.
Both though are way ahead of the third placed ccTLD, .UK (United Kingdom) who in November passed the eight millionth registration milestone.
