February 2003 Netcraft Survey Highlights
March 3, 2003
The Netcraft Web Server Survey is a survey of Web server software usage on the Internet. Netcraft received responses to its February 2003 survey from 35,863,952 sites. This is the greatest number of responses the survey has received since September 2002. It is, however, lower than the nearly 38.4 million responses received in last February's survey.
As usual, Apache, Microsoft, Zeus, and SunONE remained the key players with shares of 62.72 percent, 27.01 percent, 2.14 percent, and 1.19 percent, respectively. The top vendors once again retained their rankings of the previous month, with Apache and Zeus marginally increasing their market shares, and Microsoft and SunONE diminishing theirs in minuscule amounts.
NT-specific servers accounted for 27.23 percent of servers surveyed, representing yet another decrease from the previous month's 27.72 percent. Apache-specific servers accounted for 64.19 percent, an increase from January's 63.68 percent. Macintosh-specific servers increased slightly again to 0.30 percent from 0.29 percent.
Of the servers surveyed, 16,246,764, or 45.30 percent, had .com domains.
