Netcraft's August 2006 Web Server Survey
Internet services firm Netcraft is reporting the Internet added 4.4 million new hostnames during July - the single largest gain of new sites in a single month. Citing the battle between Microsoft and Google (specifically their free blog services Live Spaces and Blogger) contributed significantly to drive the Internet to a record level of 92,615,362 websites - although just under 47 million are active. Microsoft's strength this month helps it gain web server market share in both hostnames and active sites. In both categories, Apache leads with 62 percent share to 30 percent for Microsoft.
