Web hosting provider 1&1 today announced that the growth of .ORG domain names regsitered by its customers worldwide has increased by over 30 percent in the past 12 months. Between December of 2006, and December of 2007, the web host registered over 70,000 .ORG domains.

Oliver Mauss, CEO 1&1 Internet Inc., said, "While we have seen pleasing growth in all domain registrations worldwide, perhaps the most satisfying is the huge rise in .ORGs over the past year.  Out of 1&1's 10 million domains, some of the most innovative and productive websites are to be found in the .ORG community.  Just as the Internet was intended, the web can be an amazing means for smaller groups to make a difference, and 1&1 will continue to work hard to help the non-profit sector use the Internet to maximum effect."

From the release: "The growth of 1&1 .ORG registrations is significant in demonstrating a surge in the number of people and causes that are today empowered by the web."

Well maybe that is because they give away the .org domains for 99 cent for the first year, not really a reliable growth is it?
