Last week, an outage occurred with Amazon’s cloud-computing service, Amazon Web Services, causing websites and apps across the country to temporarily crash.
This affected hundreds of companies and thousands of websites. And it got me wondering…
How many websites are there in the entire World Wide Web?
Answer: According to InternetLiveStats.com, there are over 1.1 billion websites. At the time of this writing, there were exactly 1,156,894,180. But if you check out the Internet Live Stat tracker, you will see that new websites are constantly being added. So, by the time you look, that number will be even higher.
