YouCan Store Top-level Domain Distribution

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.

  • 43.9% of YouCan stores have a .com domain.
  • 21.8% of YouCan stores have a .shop domain.
  • 7.8% of YouCan stores have a .ma domain.
