.CN surpasses the .Net Extension

The popularity of the .CN has toppled the .net extension, with a 23 percent rise in the first quarter of 2008.

Denic that runs Germany’s “.de” domain pegged “.cn” registrations at 11.8 million and “.net” at 11.6 million as of May. The findings come as China reported that the number of Internet users there has soared to 221 million, by some measures tying the U.S. online population as largest in the world.

There’s no threat of “.cn” overtaking “.com” any time soon, however. The “.com” suffix, which VeriSign also runs, is the overwhelming leader, with 76.5 million registrations worldwide, while “.de” is second with 12.1 million according to Denic.
