Thanks for this. :) it is interesting and I note that this does support the
numbers in the ISC survey,
And I really don't think ng is the best example but since you seems to
dispute the survey completely:

I believe there are over 1100000 .za registrations amongst population of 60

This shows less than 13000 .ng (just over 1% of .za)

I am uncertain of the flaw? The survey measures hosts which imho shows the

I am not pointing fingers at any one cctld in Africa, I am only asking how

these huge discrepancies?
