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.

  • 45.4% of QDM stores have a .com domain.
  • 36.7% of QDM stores have a .com.tw domain.
  • 12.2% of QDM stores have a .tw domain.
