Netcraft's July 2007 web server survey found that there are now more than 125,626,329 sites on the Internet, 3.62 million more than in June. So far the web has grown by 20.4 million sites this year, not bad but it's slightly behind the growth rate of 2006, when the survey added a record 30.9 million sites.
The survey found that Microsoft increased its share in the server market by 1.01% to 32.8%, while Apache dropped 1.11% to 52.65%.
In active sites, Apache is now at 49.98% share, less than 14.5% ahead of Microsoft. While that's still a considerable lead, Apache had a 33.4% advantage at this time last July, meaning Microsoft has cut its deficit in half in the past 12 months.
