Ten Million .de Domains Registered at DENIC
[原文]On Monday, June 26, 2006, DENIC, the German domain administrator, processed the ten millionth application for a .de domain. This makes .de the second Top Level Domain, after .com, to pass the hurdle of ten million registered domains. The holder of the jubilee domain, huettenberger-case-fabrik.de, is a manufacturer of transport cases from Linden, a small town in the vicinity of Frankfurt.
[原文]Sabine Dolderer, member of the Executive Board of DENIC eG, summed up the milestone in these words: "the registration of the ten millionth .de domain represents a major success for DENIC and its more than 250 members. It also shows that the organization of the Top Level Domain .de as a self-regulated initiative of the industry concerned has worked out well. Thanks to DENIC's open structure as a registered cooperative and its registration terms and conditions, in which restrictions have been kept down to the strictly necessary minimum, a highly diverse provider market has been able to develop over the last ten years. It is a market in which everyone interested in holding a domain can find precisely the offer that suits them best at an attractive price. For German Internet users, .de domains remain the first choice for their presence in the worldwide network. The attractiveness of the German country code TLD is further borne out by the fact that the only domain ending which has a larger worldwide domain base is .com."
[原文]Sabine Dolderer continued: "DENIC views this success as a duty upon itself to continue to administer .de as one of the technically most advanced registries and to guarantee a stable and secure operation. For us, reaching ten million domains is not going to mean any relaxation in our efforts. On the contrary, it is going to spur us on to make sure that, every day, we live up to the domain holders' expectations that we will provide a truly top-grade service. In so doing, we know that we can continue to rely on the excellent cooperation with our members, who are the ones who maintain direct contacts with the domain holders."
