 "most"? I'm guessing you don't mean that by number of web servers ...
maybe by "most commonly deployed". Others can/do 301 redirect you to the
actual URL, or 404, or...

 To mis-quote Henry Spencer:

        Thou shalt foreswear, renounce, and abjure the vile heresy which
        claimeth that "All the world's Apache-httpd", and have no
        commerce with the benighted heathens who cling to this barbarous
        belief, that the days of thy program may be long even though the
        days of thy current web-server be short.
