The Register is a leading global online tech publication, with more than nine million monthly unique browsers worldwide. The core audiences are the UK and US, accounting for more than 6m. The bulk of the remaining readership are located in Canada, Australia and northern Europe.

Starting out in London in 1994 as an occasional email newsletter, The Register began publishing online daily in 1998. Today The Register is headquartered in London, San Francisco and Sydney and the sun never sets on its reporting team around the world.

Most Register readers are IT professionals - software engineers, database administrators, sysadmins, networking managers and so on, all the way up to CIOs. The Register covers the issues they face at work every day – in software, hardware, networking and IT security. The Register is also known for its "off-duty" articles, on science, tech culture, and from cult columnists such as the BOFH and Verity Stob, which reflect our readers' many personal interests.

The Register regularly audits its traffic through the independent authority ABCe, you can see our latest certificate here.
