This is a survey of most popular web sites that are hosted in Cambodia. Traditionally many organizations have chosen to host their web sites overseas (mainly in the USA). Now that the internet prices have come down, some have chosen to use hosting services provided by Cambodian ISPs. This gives users in Cambodia faster response times when accessing these web sites compared to sites hosted in other countries.
These statistics are based on Alexa top 1 million global sites list as published on 2012‑10‑21. Note that the Alexa ranking is based on the web browsing habits of Alexa Toolbar users which represents only a small proportion of all internet users.
First, a list of the top sites hosted in Cambodia, sorted by their global Alexa ranking, which roughly reflects the global popularity of the web site: Continue reading “Cambodia web hosting survey 2012”
A list of ISPs in Cambodia that are peering and exchanging traffic at Finder IXP (internet exchange point).

APNIC has allocated an IPv6 address range to City Link, which makes them the current technology leader of IPv6 adaptation in Cambodia. Congratulations!
According to the APNIC whois database they have recently (on 2010-02-11) allocated an IPv6 address range to City Link.

Report on up-stream peering relationships of all Cambodian internet service providers (ISPs) in December 2009.
Update (2011-12-04): Note that a friend has made an up-to-date version of the Cambodian peering graph. It is probably more interesting than this page (unless you want to know the historical situation). It is also fancier in some other ways. Have a look!
BTW, MekongNet sucks! They have copied this work verbatim without my permission nor credit and posted it at their useless “news” site. They have even removed my copyright from the overall peering graph. I think they are pretty pathetic. People like that stop me from wanting to update this site any more.
Ok, so the actual article begins here:
This time I decided to have a look at the peering relationships of various Cambodian internet service providers (ISPs). The data is based on several BGP routing table snapshots from various international sources during about a week in the middle of December 2009.

Cambodia may be soon getting its own root domain name server (DNS server). Hopefully all Cambodian ISPs will set up a local peering circuit to the new f-root server!
It looks like Cambodia may be soon getting its own root domain name server (DNS server). Continue reading “Cambodia may be getting a local f-root domain name server”
Many Cambodian IP addresses are listed on various blacklists. This was previously often preventing access to this blog. This is a result of Microsoft’s sub-standard products and policies which enable criminals to use their Windows operating system to conduct malicious activities.
I was previously using Project Honey Pot’s http:BL in conjunction with Bad Behaviour WordPress plugin to control access to this blog. My intention was to restrict access from malicious spammers and content scrapers.
Unfortunately it seems that plenty of Cambodian IP addresses are on various blacklists and thus many legitimate users were blocked as well. Continue reading “Many Cambodian IP addresses are on blacklists”
History and development of internet connectivity in Cambodia. The first 64 kbps connection was established in May 1997.
Recently I wrote an article on internet development in Cambodia. When looking at the statistics in that report, it appears as if Cambodia did not have internet connectivity before the year 2001. That is not the case. Continue reading “History of Internet in Cambodia”
In this report I decided to have a look at the internet service provider (ISP) market in Cambodia. It is not long since there were only couple of operators in the market. Nowadays there is plenty of ISPs to choose from. The report includes charts and tables which outline the internet development in Cambodia as well as compare the ISPs to each other.
This time I decided to have a look at the internet service provider market in Cambodia. It is not long since there were only couple of operators in the market.
Nowadays there is plenty of ISPs to choose from. In this report I am considering any organization which is a member of APNIC and which has allocated resources from them as an ISP. Some of the smaller ISPs might not be included in case they are only re-selling capacity provided by their Cambodian up-stream ISP.
