VeriSign reported that at the end of the first quarter of 2015, there were 294 million top level domain (TLD) registrations globally, for a 6.5 percent year-over-year growth rate.

In contrast, VeriSign reported that the total base of .com and .net TLDs was 133.0 million, making a 3.1 percent year-over-year gain. VeriSign manages both the .com and .net registries under contract with ICANN and the U.S Department of Commerce.
