The .com and .net TLDs experienced aggregate growth, surpassing a combined total of 110 million names in the second quarter of 2011. This represents a 1.8 percent increase in the base over the first quarter of 2011 and an 8.3 percent increase over the same quarter in 2010. new .com and .net registrations totaled 8.1 million during the quarter.

more and more domain names being registered worldwide and most of the good TLD names have been taken up. That's where other extensions are coming up to cater to these needs.

and you will also find lots of expired domain names around.
