100 Million Web Sites

November 1, 2006

A huge milestone was reached this past October, according to Internet monitoring company Netcraft. According to the company, there are now 100 million Web sites with domain names and content on them, with about half that many rated as "active" sites that are updated on a regular basis.

And the pace of Web growth appears to be only accelerating: When Netcraft began keeping track of the Web in August, 1995, there were just 18,000 sites in existence. It took until May of 2004 to reach the 50 million milestone, and then only 30 more months to hit the 100 million mark this past month.

Netcraft credits the low cost, and ease of domain registration and new, powerful Web site builders that have taken the complexity out of building Web sites. Much of the growth is attributed to small business, personal and yes, new blog-related sites.
