With over 5.8 million domain names under our control – over 3 million of them secured with DNSSEC – our activities generate a lot of data. By analysing the information at our disposal, we are able to build a picture of how the internet is used. That means we can identify emerging trends and highlight links between domain name usage and economic developments.

Once a month, we publish statistics about .nl:

  • The number of registered domain names

  • The number of DNSSEC domain names

  • Net growth of the .nl domain

  • The number of registrars

We publish additional statistics on the SIDN Labs website. They include data on registrations, the numbers of existing and non-existent domain names queried and the use of DNSSEC.
