I thought I'd share some more recent figures.
nginx is now the second most popular web server, although those figures are a
old (Jan 4th 2012).
Netcraft puts nginx in 3rd place across all domains, although apache
and IIS share continues to fall, while nginx is rising:
and for active sites, nginx is in 2nd place ahead of IIS:
Developer January 2013 Percent February 2013 Percent Change
Apache 103,682,570 55.50% 101,558,682 54.92% -0.58
nginx 22,227,083 11.90% 21,970,144 11.88% -0.02
Microsoft 21,211,254 11.35% 21,484,151 11.62% 0.26
Google 15,022,947 8.04% 14,976,221 8.10% 0.06
I also know that nginx is being used to shift a huge volume of bits, rather
than just number of active sites. See, for example,
(and I have to declare an interest here, I work for them).
