The Netcraft Web Server Survey is a survey of Web server software usage on the Internet. Netcraft received responses to its October 2004 survey from 55,388,466 sites. This is nearly 1 million more sites than responded in September. Results for the October 2004 Netcraft Web Server Survey are in and measure responses from nearly 55.4 million sites. These results represent the 21st consecutive month of growth, with Apache and IIS again dominating.

October was the 21st consecutive month of growth for the Web. The upswing began in February 2003 when the survey measured 35.8 million sites.
