Denmark holds EU record in domains

Denmark ranks at the top of 20 European countries in the number of registered web domains

With more than 170 web domains per 1,000 inhabitants, Denmark ranks number one when it comes to domain names, per capita, according to the survey taken by analysis institute Ipwalk.

The survey places Denmark well ahead of traditionally strong IT nations such as Germany, the UK and France.

The study compares the number of registered domain names to a country's population, and then compares results from over 210 countries. The study shows that taking population into consideration paints a very different picture of IT success than previous reports, which looked only at the number of domain names without factoring in population.

While Germany and the UK topped EU countries with the most registered domains, when the number of domains per capita were studied, Denmark headed the list. Denmark is also far ahead of its Nordic neighbours Sweden and Finland.

'The small land mass of Denmark has helped the development of a strong internet infrastructure which, together with a well-developed hosting industry and focus on international trade, contributes to the country's position in the list,' according to the Ipwalk report.

The growth in registered domain names can be attributed to an increase in basic user knowledge, where programming websites can be done by others than IT experts.
