Many people know that the CIA World Factbook is a really useful resource for those who want to discover information about places they’ve never been. Experts of TechEye recently found themselves on a page which compares different countries’ Internet hosts. The interesting thing is that Antarctica – which is not even a country – takes 139th place out of 233 entries.
As you know, Antarctica is populated mainly by scientists from different countries. However, it turned out that it has a total of 7,764 hosts, which is far outranking many countries, like Jamaica, Cuba and the Democratic Republic of Congo. This figure is far outnumbering Nigeria with a very large population, which takes only 169th place, as well as Afghanistan, Iraq and the Falkland Islands, too. In addition, Antarctica is also ahead of the Isle of Man and even way ahead of the Vatican.
In the meanwhile, the top 5 of the hosts chart includes the United States (505,000,000), Japan, Brazil, Italy and China. It is also interesting that Poland, Argentina and Canada are ahead of the United Kingdom (8,107,000). India, having a population of 1.2 billion people, only has 6,746,000 Internet hosts, while China, with a similar population, can boast 20,602,000 of them.

|actually who are the hosts|
|DNSTEK.net has 86.25% of the hosting market in Antarctica with 251 Domains so even in the frozen wastes there is Internet,the details of DNSTEK are a bit strange it has a global market share of just 0.0002 percent so the countries beaten by Antarctica must be more backwards than forest Gump,to fully appreciate how this minuscule (in global terms)operation leads these other hundred of countries one would have to look at the list compiled by the CIA who`s factbook may be a little out on its information,nothing new from the intelligence community that claimed WMD`s in Iraq for 8 years,hardly surprising facts when the countries included are the Vatican and the Isle of man though.|
|i think they had or have a Battleield 3 server running up there !!!||
