United States hit another high with the latest study revealed by Pingdom. The study states that 43% of the world’s top 1 million websites are hosted in the US. In total, we identified 191 countries as hosting one or more sites in the top 1 million. US leads the way with 431,214 sites, followed by Germany with 82,152, China with 49,730, UK with 37,829, and France with 35,777. In 20th place we find South Korea with 5,659 websites hosted out of the top 1 million. An interesting thing also comes across is that even compared to the countries in Europe combined, the US is still considerably larger, with 431,214 sites compared to the 313,252 in Europe.
