Where are the top 100,000 websites hosted?

The Internet is a pretty U.S.-centric place. While that's slowly changing, when it comes to web hosting for the top websites in the world, the United States dominates.

The country alone hosts around half of the top 100,000 websites in the world. Only Germany and China come anywhere close with each hosting more than 5,000 of the top sites.

Which cities are hosting these top sites? Houston and Dallas lead the top 15. Beijing, Tokyo, and Amsterdam were the non only-U.S. cities to make the list.  And U.S.-based companies host the most sites with the SoftLayer from IBM leading the way, followed by Amazon.

Those are some of the more fascinating statistics in a new infographic from HostCabi. Keep scrolling for an expanded look at global website hosting:
