In the June 2005 survey we received responses from 64,808,485 sites, an increase of 1.27 million from last month's survey. In the first six months of the year, the Internet has added 7.83 million sites, a pace which approaches the torrid growth rate of 2000, when the Web added 16.1 million sites. By comparison, the survey added 10.4 million sites in 2003 and 10.9 million in 2004.

The bulk of this year's growth has occurred in the United States, with a gain of 5.14 million hostnames. Other countries with strong growth in the survey thus far in 2005 include Germany (+575K), The United Kingdom (+436K), South Korea (+237.9K) and Sweden (+143K).
