CENTR has just published the eighth article in its 20th Anniversary publication series! From measuring the market to understanding it was written by CENTR's Data Analyst, Patrick Myles.

"Global domain growth rates have reached record lows, social media and free email have driven down the case for personal domain ownership, there are more TLDs on offer than ever and regulation affecting TLD registries is mounting. For a domain registry to be apathetic in these is to risk obsolescence. The industry has been walking in the dark for 20 years or more when it comes to understanding the market trends, let alone how those domains are being used. It’s time we got serious about data. 

This article will discuss how we got to where we are today in domain name analytics, what the current trends are and where we might be going."
