Automatic online search is used to conduct technical statistics about the quantity of domain names and websites, and their geographical distribution. Statistical data for reporting mainly includes the number of IP addresses and international Internet gateway bandwidth.
The data of IP addresses counted by provinces come from the IP address databases of AsiaPacific Network Information Center (APNIC) and CNNIC. Registered data in each database, that can clearly distinguish the provinces which the addresses belong to, can be added respectively by province to generate data of each province. As address allocation is a dynamic process, the statistical data are only for reference. The Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, as the national competent department for IP addresses, also require IP address allocation organizations to report the quantity of IP addresses they own biannually. To ensure the accuracy of IP data, CNNIC will compare and verify APNIC statistical data and the reported data to confirm the final quantity of IP addresses.
