Where Are the World's Most Popular Websites Hosted?

Kyle York

As I do every day, I was perusing Twitter and came across a link for a Business Insider piece on the world’s most popular websites by country. Two researchers used web traffic data from Alexa to visually display each country’s most visited website.

It’s an interesting read, and to no one’s surprise, Google is pretty much the dominant player worldwide with Baidu as the dominant force in China and Korea. But I couldn’t help but wonder what the most popular website based in each country was. So, I put the Dyn research team to work and they came up with a comprehensive list.

Top Domain by Hosting Country

This is broken up by domain being accessed, where they rank according to Alexa, and the country the site is hosted in.
