There is no central recording of who uses what distributions. For this
reason, accurate numbers are impossible to get. Some projects try to
track by asking people to volunteer their usage info, but these are
hardly scientific and are likely highly inaccurate.

The best you can say is that CentOS is extremely popular and is one of
the most commonly used distribution in the server world. Whether it is
more or less popular than Debian, Ubuntu LTS, Red Hat Enterprise Linux
proper... No one can really say.

Cheers

Well, these guys measure specifically webserver usage on the top websites:

We were #1, now we are #2 behind Debian.

BUT ... this does not show cpanel and plesk installs as they us custom
httpd that does not identify them as CentOS.

It is also web servers and does not include other things in the enterprise.

This also does not count BGP routers, appliances, firewalls, many mail
servers, etc. It's a sample of web-facing web servers only.

I know in the shop I used to work at, only a fraction of our CentOS
servers were facing the web at all, and only a couple of those ran apache.
