Verisign which had been releasing a quarterly report on the domain name industry seems to be Missing in Action.
The last Domain Name Industry Report was published for the quarter ending December 31, 2012.
Verisign had been issuing quarterly reports containing the number of total domain names registrations with a break down ccTLD’s has been a no show in 2013.
Verisign’s last quarterly report it issued was for December 2012 showed 252 million domain names registered worldwide.
As you can see from Verisign’s own archive, since at least 2008 Verisign has issued 4 quarterly reports on the domain industry, however there are no quarterly reports issued in 2013.
We are now in the fourth quarter of 2013 so there are 3 reports missing for 2013.
TheDomains.com reached out to Verisign’s representatives a few weeks ago but did not get an explanation of why they haven’t produced any quarterly reports or when the next report will be issued.
