  2. Wonderful infographic. Thank you for sharing.

    Frightening to see 2014 and 2015 side – answer to what is going to happen to most of them.

  3. Hi Konstantinos, glad you liked it. We spent most of February putting it together, as it’s a lot of data. I’m sure you will get a kick out of the interactive version at http://blog.europeandomaincentre.com/do-you-know-all-domain-endings/

    This is a great infographic! I had no idea .us was one of the original nine extensions. From Neustar’s website, I’m guessing it wasn’t made available for public adoption until 2002. Who was able to register it prior that?

  5. Nice chart. Makes it very obvious that everything colored yellow from 2001 is a waste of cyber-space.
