August 2002 Netcraft Survey Highlights


August 23, 2002

The Netcraft Web Server Survey is a survey of Web Server software usage on the Internet. Netcraft received responses to its August 2002 survey from 35,991,815 sites. This is a dip from June's peak of 38.8 million and July's low of 37.2 million sites.

Not surprisingly, Apache, Microsoft, Zeus, and iPlanet remained the key players with shares of 63.51 percent, 25.39 percent, 2.13 percent, and 1.35 percent, respectively. The number of servers increased across the board for all of the key players except Microsoft.

NT-specific servers accounted for 25.64 percent, a decrease from the previous month's 32.11 percent. Apache-specific servers accounted for 65.14 percent, and increase from July's 59.18 percent. Macintosh-specific servers increased minimally from 0.32 to 0.33 percent.

Of the servers surveyed, 17,020,981, or 47.29 percent, had .com domains.
