Updated Iran .ir ccTLD Domain Graph for 2012

Total Domain graph for year 2012 until End of August 2012

8 Month Domain Gain : 54,572 Domains
Average Monthly Domain Gain : 6822 Domains

Its almost 3% domain gain per month or around 25% domain increase only in 8 month ! This is a remarkble success for .ir domain ccTLD. Part of this success could come from the lower price of .IR domains comparing to gTLD domains. Currently .ir domains are being sold for around 50,000 IRR  to Iranians citizens as comparing to over 300,000 IRR for gTLD domains. Because of currency fluctuation, many people now prefer .ir domains over gTLD domains.
