This is our collection of must-read articles about web performance, dev, ops, and more for the weekend.
Do you know the hosting locations of the biggest websites in the world? More specifically, do you know in which cities they are located?
Last year we found that 43% of the world’s top one million sites were hosted in the United States, but we felt eager to figure out more exactly where these sites are hosted.
So, to see what could be uncovered, we crunched through the list of the world’s biggest websites.
There is so much happening on the Internet during a year that it’s impossible to capture it all in a blog post, but we’re going to give it a shot anyway. How many emails were sent during 2012? How many domains are there? What’s the most popular web browser? How many Internet users are there? These are some of the questions we’ll answer for you.
To bring you these answers, we’ve gone to the ends of the web – wherever that is – and back again, and compiled a list of truly fascinating facts about the year that was. Some of the numbers are snapshots taken during the year, others cover the entire period. Either way, they all contribute to giving us a better understanding of Internet in 2012. Enjoy!

This is our collection of must-read articles about web performance and ops for the weekend. There’s something about Facebook, Twitter, Real User Monitoring, memcache, NGINX, and more.
We regularly bring you a collection of links to places on the web that we find particularly newsworthy, interesting, entertaining, and topical. We try to focus on some particular area or topic each week, but in general we will cover Internet, web development, networking, web performance, webops, security, and other geeky topics.
Today, we take another important step on our quest for making the web faster and more reliable by going live with the Pingdom Real User Monitoring beta program. After we announced that we were working on our RUM service, the response from you guys has been tremendous, and we’re delighted that so many of you want to try it out and be a part of shaping it.
With so much happening in the mobile space today, we’re excited to announce that we’ve added a team that is dedicated to all things mobile to the growing Pingdom family.
This will help us on our quest for making the web a faster and more reliable place, regardless of what device is used to access a website.
