SRI International                                    Internet Domain Survey

 The Domain Survey attempts to discover every host on the Internet by
 doing a complete search of the Domain Name System.  The latest results
 gathered during late July 1992 are listed.  For more information see
 RFC 1296; for detailed data see the pub/zone directory on ftp.nisc.sri.com.
 This survey was done using the census program developed at the University
 of California Santa Cruz; see technical report UCSC-CRL-92-34 available
 on host ftp.cse.ucsc.edu in pub/csl.

                Hosts:            992,000  [890,000 hosts in Apr 1992]
                Domains:           16,300  [approximately]
