ISP Popularity by Domain Count
Dec 23, 2010 @ 16:08:14

Ilia Alshanetsky has posted the next article in his "domains and PHP" series - a new slicing of the data showing the ISP popularity by domain counts, a breakdown of the top 25 with over 100,000 domains to their credit.

The results are pretty interesting, and it clearly shows that a small number of ISPs are definitely doing something right, which is causing many consumers to vote with their dollars in those ISPs favor. As usual the information is shown in graph form, to filter down the data to just the large providers I’ve set a minimum at 100,000 domains, leaving me with just 122 ISPs. The image [below] shows the break-down of the Top 25.

He's created a pie graph that breaks down the ISP list with GoDaddy once again coming in top of the list and The Planet coming in second. The numbers behind the graph are also included with other things like IP, country, region and city for each. He also mentions other major breakdowns like the top ranking IP addresses and the total number of around 80,000 IPs that have over 100 domains resolving to them.

Domain Distribution by City
Dec 22, 2010 @ 19:56:17

Ilia Alshanetsky has posted the next set of results from his domains-running-PHP research he's been doing. In this latest post he looks at the domain distribution by city mostly falling in the US, Europe and China.

I am making available two additional geographic chats that breakdown the domain distribution by top world cities. The first chart a preview of which can been below (click to see full, browse-able/zoomable version) shows the Top 150 cities, by domain distribution. These cities represent a total 91.3% of some 102 million domains that could be resolved to a city level.

The top ranking city falls in the US in Scottsdale, Arizona (because of the large domain provider GoDaddy being based there) with the second place spot going to San Francisco, California. He's created both a interactive map you can use to see the numbers for different parts of the world and a concentration view of the same results making it a bit easier to digest.
