More than six million names were added to the Internet in the fourth quarter of 2012, bringing the total number worldwide to a whopping 252 million-plus top-level domains (TLDs), according to the latest Domain Name Industry Brief from Verisign, reports PC Magazine.

Don’t be too impressed by those numbers, though. According to Verisign, 21.5 percent of all .com and .net domains lead to one-page sites, while 15 percent are registered but don’t lead to a working webpage.
