    And we are assuming that the domain industry is collapsing. 330.7 million domain names registered in one quarter certainly not a negative trend. We are indeed encouraged!

    I think you are misinterpreting. That is the TOTAL number registered at end of the quarter, not the number of registrations in that quarter (I believe).

    How many businesses operate on a crappy reg fee domain because they refuse to pay more than $xx for a domain name?
