1. As of December 2019 there were over 1.9 billion websites on the Internet.
Including the world's worst website ever.
2. 4 billion out of the 7 billion people on earth are already online.
Expect a little bit of latency if they all log on simultaneously.
3. 85,000+ websites are hacked every day.
WordPress and Joomla are the most affected CMS (content management systems) on the Internet. That's why we prefer custom coding!
4. Over 5000 domain names are registered every hour.
That equals 120,000 domains every day and 43 million domains a year. Sadly more than 75% of domains registered are parked or simply unused.
5. More than 250 billion emails are sent out daily.
80% of which are claiming to be from a Nigerian prince offering a share of a huge fortune they can’t get out of the country without your help.
6. The world’s first website is still online.
The first website created was info.cern.ch, and it is still online. HTML and web design has progressed a little bit since then.
7. 400 hours of video content is uploaded to YouTube every minute.
And yet the most popular YouTuber is a gamer who uploads videos of himself playing games?
8. 51% of all internet’s traffic is fake.
Various bots and spamming software take up more bandwith than all the human traffic combined.
9. The Internet took just 4 years to reach its first 50 million users.
For comparison, television took 13 years and radio took 38 years to reach the same number.
10. Around 80% of the images on the internet are of naked women.
The internet is pretty much obsessed with naked ladies and explicit materials. In our downtime we've been doing some research on this, and so far the data does seem believable.
