It’s an interesting idea to analyse the top 500 Alexa websites of India and verifying which of domain name extensions are popular in India. The moment the thought came in mind , I have analysed the data and felt it’s worth sharing my findings with Our.in readers too.
Top 500 Alexa Websites Breakdown by Domain Extension Count ( Top 10 Domain Extensions Data )
|Domain Name Extension||Count of Top 500 Websites||Percentage (%)|
All 500 Websites Data by Domain Extensionwise:
- It’s pretty much common .COM being dominant player in the Alexa top 500 websites as several websites such as Youtube.com, Facebook.com, Twitter.com..etc are truly global products built on .COM extension. Also .IN was not available for public registration prior to 2005 so there were many nice websites and products were built on .COM names
- .COM is still having the monopoly with 64.4% however loosing the share gradually to other extensions mainly to .IN
- 95 of the overall top 500 Alexa websites in India are of .IN domain extension , if one recollect same data few years before it was pretty much .COM . .IN usage in India is growing at rapid rate. This is an important piece of data one need consider.
It’s good to be an early adopter than resisting the change. 🙂
