Around the Net

Last month's analysis of SSL topology drew comments and a wide range of questions from users. Several people commented that they had expected that Linux would by now be well established as a platform for secure transactions.

The answer is that technology preferences can vary quite widely from country to country, even for quite specific functions such as e-commerce. Linux is the most widely used operating system for SSL transactions in Japan and Germany, where it overtook Microsoft in June 2000.

However, Microsoft leads strongly in English speaking countries, with around 55 per cent share in each of the US and the UK. English speaking countries make up the lion's share of secure servers, with around 75 per cent of e-commerce sites registered in the US, UK, Canada and Australia.

Dedicated server companies make inroads into CoLo market

Another striking feature of SSL Servers is their changing location. Although Exodus and Digex are the leading locations for SSL Sites, dedicated server companies, including Interland, Verio, Innerhost, Data Return, Interliant, are now also strongly represented. The convenience and cost effectiveness of the dedicated server companies, seems to be gaining share to the detriment of the first generation co-location companies. ®
