The Top 10 ccTLDs powering the European domain market

Europe is a diverse continent with a robust digital landscape, home to over 740 million inhabitants and characterized by a high-speed digital ecosystem. This environment has led to the prominence of country code top-level domains (ccTLDs) as important markers of trust and local presence.

Here are some facts and figures:

  • In 2024, country code top-level domains (ccTLDs) account for 30-40% of the global domain market, underscoring their significance in the domain industry.
  • The global ccTLD landscape is extensive, with 308 ccTLDs (including internationalized domain names) officially delegated in the root zone.
  • Remarkably, the top 10 ccTLDs constitute 59.3% of all ccTLD domain name registrations, highlighting their critical role in the digital realm.
  • In the European Union, domains registered within EU Member States have exceeded 82 million. This dynamic domain landscape in Europe is characterized by regional growth variations and a general trend toward acquiring domains at decreasing costs.
  • A notable insight is the affordability of European ccTLDs, with the median registrar price dropping to €9.4, compared to €12.5 for a .com domain.
