Bandcamp Store Top-level Domain Distribution

.com is the most popular top-level domain for Bandcamp stores. This is not surprising since alternate top-level domains have only been introduced somewhat recently and there is still a certain cachet associated with .com domains.

That said, you'll find stark regional differences in certain countries. In Australia, .com.au is the most common top-level domain with .com a close second. This is the exception however as .com domains dominate in virtually all other countries.

  • 100.0% of Bandcamp stores have a .com domain.
