Apache becomes the Leader in SSL Servers

Posted on in Categories News last updated April 27, 2006

Netcraft reports that Apache is now the leader in SSL Server too. Apache now runs on 44.0% of secure web sites, compared to 43.8% for Microsoft.

Apache has taken much longer to reach the top because version 1.0 did not include SSL at all due to US export control laws and the patent on the RSA algorithm.

SSL support for Apache included using Apache-SSL and mod_ssl software projects.

Three cheers for Apache taking over mighty MS Web server.
