Although Microsoft loses active sites overall this month, Microsoft-IIS/7.0 — shipped with Windows Server 2008 and Vista — continues to grow, passing 3 million sites (with 2 million active sites) this month. 2.4 million of these IIS/7.0 sites are in the United States.

nginx had another strong month, gaining over 300,000 active sites at China Unicom and another 100,000 active sites due to continued growth at WordPress.com.
