0

By doing July 2020 Survey from which we received responses 1,234,228,567 Websites about 260.658.118 unique domains and 10,221,919 Computer facing the internet. This equates to a gain of 9.47 million websites and 180,000 computers, but a loss of 1.75 million domains.

Most major server vendors saw overall website growth this month: Apache gained 9.8 million websites after losing roughly the same size last month, while Microsoft and Nginx gained 5.4 million and 2.5 million websites, respectively. LiteSpeed ​​continued to experience strong growth, adding 1.95 million new websites this month. Although it accounts for 2.17% of the market, that means strong growth of 1.62% at the start of the year.

nginx recorded the highest domain growth with 200,000 domains. The loss of 1.1 million domains for Microsoft and 998,000 for Apache further extended nginx’s lead in this metric. The company currently has a market share of 29.8% (+0.27 pp) with around 30 million domains.

nginx also saw the fastest growth in web-facing computers, increasing from 97,000 to 3.5 million and only 9,000 computers (0.09 percent market share) behind Apache, the current market leader. Apache has consistently had the highest number of web-connected computers since Netcraft began collecting the metric in 2007, but was slowly losing market share – mostly to Nginx.
