Actyually - it's a 64% market share among web-site design firms for
_authoring_ - not for hosting. To quote apple's own page:
"Macintosh is the #1 platform for World Wide Web Authoring, with 64% market
share among U.S.-based professional web-site design firms."
There's a big difference between authoring and servers :)
If you look at http://www.netcraft.com/survey, you'll find that Apache, NCSA
Httpd, Microsoft IIS, Netscape Communications & Netscape Commerce servers
make up a grand total of 70% of the web servers on the net (out of some
740,000 sites queried) - with almost 42% going to apache (304,131).
Actually, WebStar, the only Mac web server that i'm familiar with (i'm sure
there are others, but i limited myself to looking at servers with more than
5000 sites) only has 15,000 sites, barely making 2% of the total
number of servers.
It wouldn't at all surprise me if the total number of macOS based web
servers out there amounted for less than 5% of the market share.
