Well, according to Netcraft, and you can check this yourself at
they're running:


                            www.ebay.com is running Microsoft-IIS/3.0

           Microsoft-IIS is also being used by Walt Disney, Compaq, Nasdaq,
 and The National Football League.

probably no surprise considering it's "reliability"   :-)

Looks like some vendors might be paying them for plugs, as it also tells
you what other suckers are running IIS if the site you search is running
Some other web servers get a plug too (Apache), but if you find an AS/400
site there's no
little plug for other AS/400 sites.

Examine some AS/400 sites - it says sites you examine will be included in
future surveys.
There's no AS/400s showing on their page at
(I guess that's "other").
You'll be disappointed if you check  www.search400.com
Note there's a separate link to check an SSL site:
And you can check for sites containing specific things in their name (like
  "as400" is found in "as400.rochester.ibm.com"
at  http://www.netcraft.com/

PS - this check isn't foolproof -there may be multiple servers for the URL,
 load balancing, etc. (buy more than likely you
     would be running the same software).

Maybe the AS/400 to hold the data for integrity and then
populate a data warehouse on the IBM Netfinity.
But then anything has to be better than what they are using
today, whatever it is.
