Question from Delaney P.: I was just wondering how many websites there are on the Internet today? I know it has to be an astronomical number.
Rick’s answer: You’re right, Delaney. It is an astronomical number!
In fact, there are nearly 2 billion of them according to the folks at Internet Live Stats!
Of course not all of those websites are currently active. Truth be told, a large percentage of the web’s currently existing websites will never receive another visitor.
But still, 2 billion is a LOT of websites, and there are almost that many in existence today.
And as you can see by the way the number displayed on the Internet Live Stats page keeps increasing, there are new websites being created every second of the day!
