Redirects by level

From our sample of 2.3 million IDNs, we categorised the status of each domain (active, redirect, timeout, not in use). This view identifies which of the domains with active name servers are being redirected to another URL. The rate of redirects at the second level (19%) is significantly higher than redirects at the top level IDNs (3%). Redirects at the top level have significantly decreased from 15% in 2016 to 3% in 2017.
