APACHE, PERSONAL WEB SERVER AND WAR FTP DAEMON ELECTED TO SERVERWATCH.COM HALL OF FAME 2000
(New York, NY--April 10, 2000)--Apache Web Server, Microsoft Personal Web Server and War FTP Daemon took the top three places in this year's ServerWatch.com's Hall of Fame. Top spots were awarded to servers that showed consistency with quality, depth of features and frequency of download over the past two years, as measured by ServerWatch editors. ServerWatch.com is part of internet.com (Nasdaq: INTM), the Internet Industry Portal.
In order to qualify, Hall of Fame recipients must have consistently appeared on ServerWatch's Top Downloads page for each of the past 100 weeks - and these three winners did just that. The Apache server, continuously number one, is the most popular Web server on the Internet, due to the fact that it's free, stable, performs outstandingly and is feature rich. The Personal Web Server (from Microsoft) is a great low-end Web server, in that it makes it easy to publish personal home pages, serve small Web sites and share documents via a local intranet. The War FTP Daemon gives a very strong performance, with customizable features, security options and the most comprehensive feature set of any FTP server.
"The reason these servers are so popular is because they offer features people want," said Amy Newman, managing editor of ServerWatch. "Also, there is a strong surge in Open Source Web software, which helps explain why Apache continues to lead the pack. War FTP Daemon, a very strong contender, is the most popular FTP server on the market due to its ease of use and the fact that it's compatible with all major FTP clients. And Microsoft Personal Web Server is at the perfect level for SOHO power users wanting to serve Web pages on their Win95/98 Boxes."
There were three runners-up on the list: Fictional Daemon, Internet Information Server v4.0 and Xitami. These servers, which have similar high quality and usability as the winners, were very strong contenders, and were on the Top Downloads page for most, but not all, of the 100 week eligibility period. "They're all feature rich and have received excellent reviews," said Ms. Newman.
