Talk about overload.
This year saw 30.9 million new Web sites created, surpassing the previous one-year record of 17.5 million added in 2005, according to the Netcraft research firm.
Overall the Web grew by 41.5 percent this year, to 105,244,649 sites. The growth rate still trails the year 2000, though, when Netcraft’s Web server survey found the number of sites increased 160 percent, from 10 million to nearly 26 million.
The latest Netcraft survey found most Web servers are still running the open source Apache platform, which has 60 percent of the market. Microsoft has 31 percent of the market, followed by Sun and Zeus.
