TYPO3 in numbers
We have tried to collect a few numbers that give you an idea about how many people work with TYPO3, how many sites run on it and some more data that's supposed to impress.
While impressing people is certainly nice, we try to explain a bit about where those numbers come from and how we made estimates when counting wasn't possible. In other words we try to be honest, because we believe what TYPO3 has achieved is already impressive enough without us (seriously underpaid) marketing hacks adding some "inventive statistics" to it.

|Numbers||Where are the numbers from?|
8,600,000+times has the TYPO3 package been downloaded from Sourceforge.net
|We offer Downloads from Sourceforge since 2005. Prior and partly in parallel to Sourceforge, TYPO3 could be downloaded from a number of other sites as well, such as Sunsite.dk. We don't have any stats from those, but you can safely add a good healthy million to Sourceforge and we still wouldn't be bragging. See for yourself at: sourceforge.net/projects/typo3/files/stats/timeline|
500,000+websites have been built using TYPO3 as their Content Management System
|We wrote a crawler that crawled 7,496,183 million .de domains and 82,130,115.00 .com-domains and as many other TLDs we could get our hands on, seriously. It took several months and a lot of hardware. Granted, those are not all domains in existence, which are about 248 million top level country domains (in 2009, according to ICANN), of which more than 14 million are .de domains (according to Denic.de). The crawler checked for a number of patterns to find out what CMS a site is running on, if any. Out of those .de-domains 1,51% turned out to be running TYPO3, and 0,11% of all 110 million .com-domains we crawled. The overall estimate on domains today is 248 Million, so if our .com sample was representative, TYPO3 would be powering something around 418.400 Domains. That doesn't count the cases of intranet and extranet applications based on TYPO3 that no crawler can reach. So feel free to take a few percent from our estimate of 500.000 sites if you feel misanthropic today, the installed base is still (shockingly) massive.|
79,000+developers are registered on typo3.org and are contributing to the ecosystem
|Imagine one massive stadium full of TYPO3-nerds...|
Since 2003 it is possible to create a user account on TYPO3.org and it also makes sense to do so, because you need an account for creating extension keys (TYPO3-speak for registering a module), using the forge (dev hub redmine-thingamagic) and entering the realm of the mighty bug tracker. We kill unused user accounts every once in a while, but they keep coming back. Of course this number already excludes all those bot registrations etc.
|Extensions are the modules the community publishes for you to use. We run an online TYPO3 Extension Repository that community members use to share their extensions, if they want to share them. A great number of extensions never are published in fact, since they satisfy individual customer needs or the developer doesn't want to deal with the side-effects of being popular. so those 1,000+ custom modules are probably just the tip of the iceberg. Also keep in mind, TYPO3 already has more than 10,000 features in it's, quite different from many very slim-core Open Source CMS, so don't just compare the numbers.|
51language localizations are already available for TYPO3
|This is the number of localizations the TYPO3 backend is available in, which includes all major tongues. And icelandic. We do miss a few dialects, like bavarian, pirate english, elvish and klingon. Did we mention we've got icelandic covered?|
1647+consultanties are committed to providing TYPO3 services worldwide
|Companies from 150 countries are registered in our database to be found by clients looking for TYPO3-related services. That's about 120 more countries than Ms. West Virginia can name without more maps. With the new website we have decided to only list those though, that have shown commitment to TYPO3 by becoming a TYPO3 Association member and going through the approval process for approved agencies. |

9,998+amount of out of the box features in TYPO3.
|The power of a CMS and its readiness for the Enterprise in the end is often measured by its features. Robert Lemke, one of the core developers once said that he attempted one night to count the amount of features TYPO3 has and he fell asleep at 9,998. The reality is, while other CMS out there need 100 modules to achieve standard CMS tasks, TYPO3 boasts an incredible feature-set of out-of-the-box functionalities. Try counting for yourself and if you find any less we will revise this number!|
Even more numbers?
We are still planning to add even more impressive numbers to this page and update it regularly, so if you happen to know the amount of classes and functions in TYPO3 or any other interesting statistics, please share them with the Marketing Team.
