This map of domain names flips the world on its head

The Pacific island of Tokelau reigned supreme.

In 2017, its superiority has yet to fade.

The number of .tk websites may have dropped from 31 million to 18 million, but the four square miles of land in New Zealand still has more domain registrations than almost any other nation or territory in the world.

Tokelau is barely visible on standard world maps, but here it becomes a huge area in the southern Pacific.

China, the world's most populous nation, is now first on the list with more than 20 million registered domains on .cn, followed by Germany (16 million on .de), United Kingdom (10.6 million for .uk and .co.uk) and Tokelau (18 million for .tk).

Guinea Bissau (.gw), with just two.
