Internet & Networking With financial backing from the likes of Michael Dell and other venture capitalists, open source upstart Nginx has edged out Microsoft IIS (Internet Information Server) to hold the title of second-most widely used Web server among all active websites. What's more, according to Netcraft's January 2012 Web Server Survey, Nginx over the past month has gained market share among all websites, whereas competitors Apache, Microsoft, and Google each lost share.

Well, if you look at the third graph, it does seem to say the same thing as the article...

odd thing is talking about 582,716,657 sites and making conclusion on the base of 3th table with sum about 164 millions sites.

This is because the third table is about actual websites, as opposed to automatically generated stuff, such as the commercial links that appear when one looks up a nonexistent domain name.

Bots apparently prefer Apache and IIS to nginx.

The methodology used to differentiate both is explained here : http://news.netcraft.com/active-sites/
