Who Is Powering the Internet?

Posted on 11.20.2012

That’s the question Flippa, a marketplace for buying and selling websites, looked to answer when the company took more than $26 million in transactions from the last 18 months (Oct. 2012) to work out what technologies are used to power the Internet, and how this has changed in the last 12 months. 

The company’s findings should prove to be particularly useful and interesting to e-commerce startups, bloggers and digital marketers, as the data shows some mainstays for development and e-commerce falling by the wayside. 

For example, in the e-commerce realm, the demand for eBay's Magento (read about their most recent updates here) and Yahoo Store continues to weaken at the expense of challengers such as Shopify and BigCommerce.

According to the data, Blogger also appears to be in perpetual decline, as for Content Management Systems, it accounted for the supply of just 1 percent of those transactions.
