Italian ccTLD .it has topped three million domains for the first time, according to registry Registro.it.

The milestone name was abbigliamentoludica.it, seemingly a clothes shop. It appears to have been registered November 25.

The registry announced the news in English last week.

It appears that growth is slowing somewhat over the long term. The ccTLD hit one million in 2005 and two million in 2010, but it’s taken six years to get to the next big landmark.

.it seems to have started the year with 2,869,010 domains under management, according to its stats page.

It currently has 3,002,135 domains under management, according to the web site.
