Each month we relay the latest Apache market share statistics from Netcraft, but we don't need to bother again. Apache now officially serves 100% of all web sites on the Internet (with a little help from Verisign). Whilst the controversy over the decision by Verisign to point all unassigned domain names at its Web site continues, we like the fact that just about any domain name you can think of now runs Apache on Linux. However, when asked by Apache Week, Netcraft founder Mike Prettejohn told us his survey results now ignore these wildcard top-level domains. Spoilsport!
It's nice to see that VeriSign's elite Internet hacking skills are good for something.
