July Web Server Market Share

In July 2014, there were 996M sites, almost breaking through the 1B mark. Microsoft IIS has overcome Apache to take the #1 spot, and is now the market leader. However, this number represents total sites that includes active and non-active sites. The non-active sites include domains that are parked, squatted, held in portfolios, and so on. When only taking into account active sites, Apache is still the leader by a long shot with 91M active sites, and Microsoft with 21M active sites.
