Apache has remained the predominant Web server for years, capturing 65 percent of the Web server market today. As reported on Techie Bizz, Microsoft’s IIS is the second most popular Web server but it's market share has fallen back to 16 percent.

"Around three years back, IIS was catching up and for a moment, it looked like Apache was losing ground. However, since 2007, Apache has been on a constant rise and has captured 65% of the web-server market today. This comes as a surprise, since Microsoft has worked extensively towards pushing its web technologies. ASP.NET and Silverlight are impressive enough. In spite of this, the current market share of IIS stands at 16%. This is a deva-vu from 1997 when IIS had exactly this much of share in the web-server market."
