Kevin Murphy, October 3, 2018, Domain Registries

The Brazilian ccTLD, .br, last week topped four million registrations for the first time, then promptly dropped back below the milestone.

The TLD was at 4,000,260 domains on Monday September 24, prompting a press release from Nic.br, dropping back below four mill the next day, then hit 4,002,574 this Monday.

The TLD stands at 3,996,604 today, according to statistics Nic.br publishes on its web site.

It’s taken about six years to grow from three million names. The leap from two million to three million took about two and a half years.

Brazil operates on a three-level structure, with dozens of second-level domain options available to registrants.

The large majority of registered names — 3,645,073 — are in the .com.br space.
