With 758,284 pageviews on 21st of May, esctoday.com broke an all-time pageview record. During the entire month, more than one million people generated almost 6,000,000 pageviews.

One so-called hit is a visited page, downloaded image or file, generated by a visitor of the website. During May, esctoday.com had as many as 100,000,000 hits, which equals approximately 500 gigabytes of datatraffic from our servers.

On the night of the 2006 Eurovision Song Contest final, right after the results, our servers received the maximum amount of 1,200 requests per second.

Since 11th October, 2000, the day esctoday.com opened its virtual doors, more than 100,000,000 pages were viewed, generating more than 1,5 billion hits.

The esctoday.com team would like to thank you for your dedication during the 2006 Eurovision Song Contest season. Please keep visiting esctoday.com, as we will launch several new features in the upcoming months!
