Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

Web ratings outfit Media Metrix rates AOL's Web sites achieving a narrow first over Yahoo in terms of unique visitors in October. The company's monthly survey measures the preferences of 62.5 million Web users and then categorises the major players among sites from there. With less than 200,000 unique visitors separating them, AOL and Yahoo's total across all their sites was virtually neck and neck at the 30 million mark. Microsoft, which has been assembling sites itself, wasn't far behind with just under 29 million, and Lycos, shaving the 28 million mark, makes it clear that we've got a big four here. Netscape, Geocities and Excite are all around the 18-20 million mark, with Disney, Infoseel, Time Warner and Alta Vista making up the rest of the top ten. The top tens of specific sites are somewhat different - aol.com is top for home, but for work the league runs yahoo.com, netscape.com, microsoft.com and then aol.com. ®
