Number of websites hits the one billion mark

Posted on Thursday, September 18 2014 @ 11:13:17 CEST by

The Internet hit a new milestone as the number of websites broke through the one billion mark! The figure, and the exact time and date of the milestone still needs to be verified, but it's believed to have been achieved sometime earlier this month.

There are nearly 3 billion Internet users in the world so this means there's now roughly one domain name per three Internet users. The actual number of real websites will be much lower, online tracker Internet Live Stats (ILS) notes that 75 percent of these 1 billion websites are not currently active, but are nothing more than parked domains. It's also unknown how many of the remaining 250 million are real, useful websites.
‘Given the monthly fluctuations in the count of inactive websites, the one billion mark will need to be confirmed in the months ahead.’

Tim Berners-Lee, considered the father of the world wide web, also touted the milestone on Twitter - one of the most prominent and popular websites online today.

The milestone comes as the choice of internet domains expands beyond ‘.com’ and ‘.net’ to provide more options for the increasing number of sites.

New domains include ‘.london’, ‘.restaurant’ and ‘.shop’.
