2 Germany 4,329,911
3 United Kingdom 3,033,853
4 Canada 2,619,202
5 China 2,270,326
6 France 1,822,961
7 Australia 1,406,044
8 Japan 929,089
9 Spain 914,639
10 Korea 852,689
11 HongKong S.A.R. 786,574
12 Italy 746,080
13 Netherlands,The 570,544
14 Turkey 459,330
15 Cayman Islands 402,402
16 India 355,744
17 Russia 281,250
18 Denmark 273,045
19 Thailand 262,206
20 Sweden 219,284
21 Switzerland 192,964
22 Norway 183,960
23 Austria 174,136

If someone can recommend a way to compile a local database, it be of tremendous help.

Thank you in advance.

Hi faithless1,

Are you wanting the actual domain names which make up the statistics you've given?

Are you wanting to put them into an actual database (e.g. MySQL), or just a flat file (e.g. a text file)?

Hi,

Yes a list of domain names in a flat file and it does not necessarily have to be based on the statistics provided.

One massive text file would be perfect, I can then access them through the terminal.

Thank you

So you firstly need access to a website (or webpage(s)) which contain that information, right?  Do you know of one?  If not, your first problem is to find one, and the zones you've selected may not be the best options for that.  I wonder if "HOT URLs" would be useful.  You might find that such information is not avaliable to the public.
