Number of hosts registered in the IS ccTLD

From 1990 to 2010, RIPE conducted a monthly count of all registred hosts within its service area. In Iceland the IS country-code administrator Internet á Íslandi hf. performed the count and made the results available to RIPE.

This is the result of the latest such hostcount for the .IS ccTLD, conducted in 2010. Presented here for historical purposes only.

The total number of hosts in Iceland as of latest count was 289812, which translates into 1.10 persons per connected host.
