The Vietnam Internet Network Information Centre has released data revealing that almost 56,000 new Vietnamese domains were registered in the first 6 months of this year.
This means that Vietnam has registered more country-code top-level domains (ccTLDs) than any other South East Asian country during that time period.
Around 35,000 new domains written in Vietnamese were also registered, meaning there are now just over a million Vietnamese language domains in existence, with around 18% being active.
Vietnam's internet population is increasing rapidly, with 36 million people now using the internet.
With a total population of around 90 million, however, Vietnam's internet market is far from mature, meaning that there is still plenty of opportunity for growth to come.
