Apache offers range of features to web hosts

09/13/2012 | Internet hosting |

If you're looking to host a website, one option you may be considering as you build a web server is the Apache HTTP Server software. This is the most popular web server platform in use today for delivering content to users through the HTTP application protocol, with figures from Netcraft recently revealing it is currently used on more than 58% of servers around the world. One of the key reasons for this may be its free, open-source nature combined with a range of professional features, which make it suitable for use by developers of any size, from single hobbyists to large enterprises. It is highly configurable and a range of third-party modules are available.

Last month, the development team behind the project confirmed the release of version 2.4 of the software, which offers a wide range of improvements over the previous 2.2 release. These include many new and enhanced modules for building a site and greater control over multi-processing modules. However, despite the additional options, the team claim the new build offers significantly improved memory usage compared with previous versions, allowing it to deliver web pages faster than earlier editions. Recently, developers of the program also confirmed a new update that overrides a default feature in Microsoft's Internet Explorer 10 (IE10) browser that turns on Do Not Track (DNT) unless a user opts out. 

All the major browsers offer DNT options to users who do not want their behaviour logged, but IE10 has bucked the trend by making this option active by default, rather than requiring individuals to opt-in. Microsoft claimed this move better protects the privacy of users, but it could pose significant problems for web domain owners and marketers that rely on tracking usage habits in order to deliver targeted advertising. This is a major source of income for many websites that may be lost if a large percentage of users cannot be tracked.
