The internet is huge
Netcraft released a report that shows the internet is experiencing some explosive growth lately. Some factors they say that has attributed to the growth are:
- Increasing use of the Internet by small businesses as web sites and online storefronts become more affordable.
- The explosive growth of weblogs, a growing number of which are purchasing domains for branding purposes.
- Speculation in the market for domain names, buoyed by rising resale prices and the ability to generate revenue via pay-per-click advertising on parked domains.
- Strong sales of online advertising, especially keyword-based contextual ads that support business models for both domain parking and commercial weblogs.
