nic.at Presents the Austrian Domain Map
Where are most .at domains located? The domain registry nic.at presents the distribution of registered .at domains in Austria on its domain map. nic.at's data has been correlated and analyzed with population figures provided by Statistics Austria. As a sneak peek: There is no municipality in Austria without a .at domain. The first district in Vienna takes pole position, but winter sports areas are also hotspots.
Vendors contribute to high domain density
At the municipal level, the first district of Vienna boasts the highest density of registered .at domains. On average, there are 1.8 domains for each resident. In many cases, a concentration of domains in one area signifies economic prosperity and urban centers. Therefore, it might initially come as a surprise that the small Upper Austrian town of Holzhausen takes second place with 1,260 registered domains per 1,000 residents. However, the high number of registered domains suggests that there are some domain investors residing in Holzhausen. These are often individuals or businesses whose business model revolves around trading domain names. In third place is the town of Untertauern in the Salzburg region with 903 registered domains per 1,000 residents.
Winter sports regions are hotspots
Popular tourist destinations like Untertauern, Ischgl, or Sölden lead the rankings. The reason for this is that hotels, restaurants, and other establishments showcase themselves online using a .at domain. As a result, there are numerous .at domains, especially in winter sports regions with low population densities. Bringing up the rear on the domain map is the town of Pühret in Upper Austria, with one domain for every 1,000 residents. In Austria, this means that there is not a single town without at least one registered .at domain.
Carinthia brings up the rear
The state ranking is led by Vienna with 155 registered .at domains per 1,000 residents, followed by Salzburg (136) and Tyrol (112). Carinthia ranks last with 92 registered domains per 1,000 residents.
The majority of .at domain owners are based in Austria, with more than 70 percent having an Austrian postal address. Fourteen percent come from Germany, followed by 2.2 percent from Switzerland. The remaining percentage represents the non-German-speaking regions. Globally, there are 360 million domains registered across 1,456 domain extensions.
