On a per capita basis the new unsponsored gTLDs have proven most popular in Switzerland 
(
Figure 7
). Next, in order of the greatest number of registrations per 100 inhabitants, were Germany, the 
Netherlands, Austria followed by the United States and Sweden. On the other hand, relatively little use of 
new unsponsored gTLDs is being made by users in Greece, Japan, Portugal, the Slovak Republic, Poland, 
Hungary, Turkey and Mexico.

There are, no doubt, many factors involved in why the new gTLDs are used in some countries more 
than others. Some of these would be related to the overall level of Internet access and use in any country. 
This is itself dependent on a myriad of economic and social factors.  In this respect, the take up of new 
gTLDs is not substantially different to the use of ccTLDs with one exception. The exception is the United 
States where for historical reasons the use of gTLDs, such as 
.com
, 
.net and .gov
, was much more 
common than the use of 
.us
. By way of contrast, there is a reasonably good correlation between the take up 
of ccTLDs and the take up of new gTLDs if the data for the United States are excluded (
Figure 8
).
