Since the beginning of this year the Web has grown with an average of 1.2 million sites a month. Microsoft web servers had a slight share improvement of 0.25% in active sites that reversed several months of small gains by Apache.

About 70.29 percent of all active sites run on the Apache webserver. Microsoft, Sun and Zeus respectively have 22.2, 0.85 and 0.70 percent market share.
