845653-media_httpwwwjamescogancomimagesdotcngif_EGaCFlCcCswjjatNot a big shocker by any means, but yesterday China’s .CN domain name extension became the largest country-code domain on the internet. What took you so long, China?

China’s .cn now stands alone atop the list of the largest country code Top-Level Domain (ccTLDs) in the world. It has shot past Germany (.de) at an alarming rate…Today, China accounts for nearly a fifth of the World’s internet use, an estimated 56 million users. Within the next 2 years, it is expected that China will account for a solid 25% of the total internet use around the globe.
