But still, among the "active domains", the number is 61% Apache. I think
if a domain returns a page, it is "active" regardless of whether it is a
"parked" page or some ad page.

So a static site should not be counted? That doesn't make sense.

Netcraft look at the actual headers returned from an HTTP connection to
a site - dont see anything wrong with sampling this way (at least,
there's no humans involved and the whole thing is automated).
