There are over 2 million registered .in domain names.

The IN Registry the official registry for the .in ccTLD domain extension for India has started to post registrations stats  on their site showing the number of .in registered domain names.

I’m told the registry put the stats up last week for the first time.

As you can see the registry is reporting a number that does not seem formatted correctly at least by Western standards.

“”Total number of IN domains # 20,67,508”

However according to Wikipedia.org,  the Indian numbering system, 20,67,508 is like  2,067,508 as  Indians don’t use the millions in numbering system, the use  ones, tens, thousands,  followed by lakh  .. 10 lakhs is equal to one million )

Makes senses in that CENTR who reports on the number of domain names in the world including country code domain extensions like .in, does not have .in in the top 10 ccTLD’s.

According to the last CENTR report it took 2.9 million domain names to make the top 10 ccTLD list (.it for Italy was number 10)
