Dyn Research: Where The Most Popular Websites In The World Are Hosted

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.
