We saw an enormous 594% increase of newly registered botnet C&C domains at the US domain registrar NameSilo, knocking Namecheap off their #1 ranking. This was quite a feat considering that NameCheap saw a 52% increase in newly registered botnet C&C domains. These are huge numbers!

It was not only US-based registrars who saw significant increases in Q2. The two German-based domain registrars, Key Systems (56%) and 1API (254%), also experienced growth in the number of botnet domains registered through their services, as did almost all the Chinese registrars listed below, including eName Technology who entered our Top 20 at #3.
