1,759 .gov Domains….

Yesterday White House, GSA, and OMB released the official list of .gov domains

Check it out at http://explore.data.gov/Federal-Government-Finances-and-Employment/Federal-Executive-Branch-Internet-Domains/k9h8-e98h

1,759 is obviously a ton of domains and lots can be consolidated.

I do have to say that you count them in a bunch of different ways as lot of domains redirect to others like hotels.gov that redirects to a GSA.gov page on Fedrooms – http://www.gsa.gov/portal/content/104419

Or Consumer Finance Bureau has:





Some could argue those should count differently. It would be interesting to see the number of domains a similar sized company owns (for example, a GE or Coca-Cola) as I’m guessing it’s a number.

I’d also like to see the number of domains that are actually hosting websites VS re-directing.
