The IT registrar market

In order to analyze the diffusion of the Internet in Italy we have utilized the number of Registrars as indicators. The Registrant requests the registration of a new domain name through a Registrar accredited by the Registry. The data are extracted from the databases managed by the Institute of Informatics and Telematics (IIT) of the National Research Council of Pisa (IIT-CNR). Furthermore, in this article we want to identify which are the factor contributing to the differences about Internet use (digital divide) in Italy. To define the factors that determine the digital divide we have utilized the stepwise regression multivariate model by using the stepwise method. The dependent variable taken into consideration is the penetration rate (TS1) at the regional level and the independent variables are regional economic, cultural, demographic and technological factors.
