There are now 1,300 top-level domains live on the internet.

The milestone was hit today when the dot-brand .flir was delegated to FLIR Systems, a $1.5 billion-a-year thermal imaging systems manufacturer.

Its nic.flir domain is now live and currently redirects to existing sites in other TLDs.

According to the DI database, there are 292 ccTLDs, of which 45 are internationalized domain names.

There are 1,008 gTLDs of which 84 are IDNs; 985 were applied for in the 2012 new gTLD application round.

Of the gTLDs, 347 are dot-brands (defined as where the registry has signed Spec 9 and/or Spec 13 of the new gTLD Registry Agreement).
