  Around the Net
  
   For the third month in a row there was strong growth in sites run
   using web servers outside of the traditional big three of Apache,
   Microsoft, and Netscape. There are now over half a million sites at
   [1]NetZero which provides a free .com domain and web hosting service,
   based on WebLogic's server. [2]Zeus continued its own strong growth,
   and is now running on over 600,000 sites, while [3]mydomain.com has
   switched to using AOLserver to provide domain name registration, DNS
   management facilities and hosting for around 200,000 domains.
   
    Dedicated Server business growing very quickly
    
   Over the last year the dedicated server business has progressed from
   an innovative niche to become the sector that everyone wants to be in.
   The combination of good quality networks, efficient and convenient
   provisioning, and cheap pricing has proved irresistible to many medium
   sized sites that previously hosted their sites on their own networks,
   with simple colocation facilities, or on higher end shared hosting
   systems. Many of leading companies in this sector are relatively new
   and unfamilar names, with the first and second generation companies
   such as [4]uu.net, [5]psi.com and [6]exodus.net having missed the
   initial surge of interest in the sector.
