[ATTACH=RIGHT]22199[/ATTACH]Ever wondered just how many domain names there are on the Internet? DaniWeb has, and can reveal the answer as being an almost astonishing 215 million worldwide. According to global Internet infrastructure provider and domain registrar Verisign, more than five million domain names were added to the total during the second quarter of this year alone, which represents a growth rate of 2.5 percent above the previous three months. To put that into some perspective, that's a year on year growth in the number of Internet domains of 8.6 percent or some 16.9 million domains. If you were to look …

Hello Everyone, I want to track more than 100 sub domains/inner pages at a time with the help of Google Analytics. For example, I want to track a job/employment related website which consist of more than 200 employers and job seekers (approximately). Say if the job seeker and employers registers an account and the website automatically creates seperate web pages with page name for them. I would like to know whether it is possible to track those people with the help of Google Analytics Account? Waiting for the valuable reply.. Thanks, Emma

Hello Community, I'm making a new service called Gimme Support, currently my domain is [http://gimmesupport.co](http://gimmesupport.co). I need to renew it soon and I was debating on weather to change it to [http://gimme.support](http://gimme.support). Which would you say is better [http://gimmesupport.co](http://gimmesupport.co) or [http://gimme.support](http://gimme.support)? I'm still not sure which one I should go with, I'd probably consider renewing the .CO extension for a few months just for the cross-over stage (only because it is still under-construction so no one really knows about it yet) as well as buy the .SUPPORT extension and move everything over.

Hello, I have a client that wants to switch his TLD (top level domain) over when the new design for his site goes live. Problem is his old domain have thousands of backlinks linking back to his old domain. The plan is to set up a 301 Re-Direct from the old domain to the new domain. I was just wondering if this re-direct will render the backlinks useless? Any one come across this problem or have any solutions/advice? TIA Reece Cropley

My question requires a little background first: I'm working on a Web project where there are four theatres owned by a single company, so not only will the four theatres each need their own Website (each with its own unique branding), but the umbrella company will need one as well. I realize that one solution is to have 5 different domains pointing to 5 different Websites on 5 different servers with 5 different MySQL databases. But since all 5 Websites will share a lot of the same content, this solution is highly inefficient, not to mention costly. I realize that …

Hello, I need to seperate multiple domains by having and not having A records. I have created a shell script like below, but it is not working, as the $? is same (0) for both the dig commands that have and not have A records. ************************* #!/bin/bash for dom in `cat /home/xxxx/domainslist.txt` do result= dig +noall +answer $dom if [ "$result" != '') ];then echo $dom >> /home/xxxx/havingA.txt else echo $dom >> /home/xxxx/havingNoA.txt fi done ************************** Please help me if there is any other way we can do this. Thank you.

Using newly registered domains with a very short lifespan to host malware websites is so last year. It would appear that these days such things are far more likely to be hosted on much older compromised web sites instead. Could this be down to a decline in domain tasting? The latest MessageLabs Intelligence [URL="http://www.messagelabs.com/intelligence.aspx"]report[/URL] appears to think so, suggesting that the previously widespread practise of cancelling a new domain registration within a few days 'cooling off' period has been in decline recently. Indeed, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers stated as much in June. The MessageLabs analysis of …

Suppose I wanted to create multiple websites hosted on different servers, but I want some certain duplicate contents (e.g. news box that shows same headlines and news on both sites). The sites will be different, just the news box will have duplicate contents. What would be the best approach for this? I'm just thinking duplicating user control that pulls data off the same database or is this too noob?

Happy Birthday to the .com domain, 25 years old today. Yes, it really was way back on the 15th March 1985 that symbolics.com became the very first true dotcom company by registering a .com domain on the Internet. Today there are no less than 80 million registered dotcom websites. One new study has found that the economic impact of the dotcom domain should not be undervalued, revealing that the domain serves as a platform for some $400 billion in annual economic activity! The Information Technology and Innovation Foundation (ITIF) report suggests that the broader Internet economy drives an astonishing $1.5 …

This time last year The Pope was warning the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) to not let religion into the domain name system, with the Vatican arguing that suggested domains such as .catholic and .islam would provoke bitter disputes. New generic Top Level Domains (gTLDs) have always caused controversy and are never a straightforward shoe-in, the ongoing saga over whether .xxx will or won't be accepted as a one size fits all sex domain is proof of that. However, when you throw religion into the domain mix things start getting really problematical, which should come as no …

Ever wondered just how big the Internet is? I know I have, and during my search for an answer I have discovered along the way [URL="http://www.daniweb.com/blogs/entry1437.html"]how fast it is[/URL] and [URL="http://www.daniweb.com/blogs/entry4387.html"]how much spam it produces[/URL]. But now I know how big it is as well. When it comes to size, however, then you have to consider the metric upon which the measurement is based. Is it the number of websites, or maybe the number of people connected to it? How about the number of domain name registrations, which actually seems like a pretty good way of seeing the Internet in …

According to the VeriSign [URL="http://www.verisign.com/domainbrief"]Domain Report[/URL] for the second quarter of 2008 which has just been published, there were some 168 million domain name registrations across the Top Level Domain Names at the midpoint of the year. That represents a 22 percent increase over the same period last year, and up four percent over the first quarter of 2008. Country code top level domains were also up, 27 percent when viewed as a year on year figure to a total of 65 million domain names. If you break the domain name industry down into the largest top level domains when …

Although there has been no great fuss made, no pin badges sold and no banners waved, Monday 4th February is for all intents and purposes the day IPv6 grows up. Because from that day, IPv6 IP addresses will be able to be directly translated into domain names and vice versa, without the need for the old IPv4 protocol. Some see this as the single most important step so far in the race towards IPv6 implementation before the store of IPv4 addresses is finally exhausted. Most experts seem to agree that these will start running out in earnest from the start …

Proposals for a virtual red light Internet district have been overturned for the third time during a contentious meeting of the [URL="http://www.icann.org"]Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers[/URL] (ICANN) in Portugal. Concluding business at the meeting, a resolution rejecting a proposal from the [URL="http://www.icmregistry.com/"]ICM Registry[/URL] to create an .xxx top level domain was passed by nine votes to five. Despite the reported tens of thousands of pre-registration requests for .xxx domains received by ICM, almost ironically it would appear to be the lack of backing from the adult industry itself that was a key factor in voting it down for …

J.K.Rowling has now officially announced that the latest, and last, in the Harry Potter series of books will be called ‘Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows’ putting an end to the frenzy of speculation on the subject over the last few months. While it has been genuine fans interested in all things associated with their hero who have been speculating so far, you can bet that now the title is official there will be a new breed of speculator on the scene: the domain squatters. With such a big franchise as Harry Potter, and searches on the final book and …

It’s bad enough, as an individual, to discover that the domain name you wanted has been snapped up by some corporate pirate looking to make a mighty profit by sitting on it and selling it on. It is even worse when these cyber-squatters snap up a domain you had been using but somehow managed to let lapse by not renewing the registration in time. However, the problem gets a whole lot more complicated when you are a corporate whose brand and business is being devalued by a typo-squatter. Type-squatting is, as the name suggests, the practice of using the misspelling …

Here we go with the mobile phone beat-down again: Cingular Wireless, in a move boiling over with distasteful corporate hubris, has had the unmitigated effrontery to announce that they are going to charge folks with "older phones" an additional five bucks a month (OK, $4.99, but who's splitting hairs here?) Now, it's not really the older phones they are targeting, but rather those based on the old, analog TDMA technology. Their reasoning for this is that they want to phase out their older, analog network, which isn't a problem in and of itself, but why beat down the customer in …

FEMA, the Federal Emergency Management Association committed acts of browser discrimination by only allowing people with Microsoft Windows and Internet Explorer 6.0 to file electronic claims in response to Hurricane Katrina. This means that if I was an affected citizen of the US, and had my Mac laptop with me and a valid internet connection, I could not file a claim. Nor could my friend running Linux who uses Firefox, or perhaps Konquerer. According to FEMA's website, at [url]http://www.fema.gov/help/registration_faq.shtm[/url] the minimum computer is a Windows unit with IE 6. No other OS / browser combination will be supported / available. …
