The number of websites and blogs worldwide is simply mind-blowing!
According to reports by global domain and internet service provider VeriSign Inc, a stunning 7.9 million (thereabouts) domain name registrations were added to the internet in the second quarter of 2016 globally  (which translates as an amazing a 2.4% growth rate over the first quarter) thus bringing the total number of domain name registrations to approximately 334.6 million (OMG) across all top-level domains (TLDs) as of the 30th of June, 2016 as detailed by the latest Domain Name Industry Brief.
The .com and .net TLDs experienced aggregate growth in the second quarter of 2016, reaching a combined total of approximately
143.2 million domain name registrations in the domain name base, representing a 7.3% increase every year.
New .com and .net domain name registrations totaled 8.6 million during the second quarter of 2016. 
In the second quarter of 2015, new .com and .net domain name registrations totaled 8.7 million.
Excerpts from a VeriSign statement below:
“During the second quarter of 2016, Verisign’s average daily Domain Name System (DNS) query load was approximately 130 billion queries per day across all TLDs operated by Verisign, with a peak of nearly 179 billion queries,” 
Quarter over quarter, the daily average query load increased 4.9 percent and the peak decreased by 5.0 percent. Year over year, the daily average query load increased by 17.0 percent and the peak decreased by 1.5 percent.
