The Internet is Approaching Two Billion Websites
For the first time in history — obviously — there will soon be two billion websites on the Internet. That is billion with a “b.” It’s a number so large it almost cannot be comprehended. As of this writing there are 1.99B websites online (via InternetLiveStats). To help illustrate how big of a number that is, Medium.com wrote that “a million golf balls will fit in the average-sized master bedroom… a billion golfballs would fit inside the Grand Central Terminal Main Concourse.” If you had a golf ball for every website on the web, you could fill two train terminals …or sell them for a lot of money! We thought it was time to take a look back at the history of the Internet and how it became so well-populated.
