Welcome to the .Net100 – a ranking that measures the top sites on the web with the .net domain extension. Entrepreneur [Magazine] & Verisign came together to assemble the ranking, which is based on quantitative factors and the feedback from Entrepreneur’s audience of sophisticated, successful business owners. Together, we then gathered traffic & social metrics for each site, as well as your votes to determine the rankings
#1. SlideShare claims to be the largest network for uploading & sharing presentations, with an estimated 60 million users & 130 million Page Views. Everyone from teachers, businesses & government agencies use it to pass around & edit presentations. That has made the company, based in San Francisco, one of the top 200 visited sites in the world.
#2 PHP is an all-purpose scripting language used in Web development, though it is also used in general programming. PHP.net is the hub for the language, allowing for free downloading & sharing. PHP has grown in popularity because it is easy to use for beginners and compatible with just about all the servers used today.
#3 Battle.net Do you like Blizzard games, like World of Warcraft , Diablo III & Hearthstone? Then Battle.net is your home. The site is a community for gamers, set up by Blizzard Entertainment to keep their users talking — & gaming — together in one place. It also serves as an eCommerce platform for Blizzard.
