    Web Hosting: A Summary of 2011

    Trends in web hosting have varied from year to year, with some years showing bigger advances and more changes to the hosting landscape than other years. In 2011, users had access to more resources and experienced greater ease of use at lower costs. Most of the web hosting trends in 2011 were small changes that focused on convenience and accessibility. The cloud continued to reign, web hosting got greener and technological advances made the Internet more mobile than it has ever been. Some excesses remained, although more hosts focused on the smart use of resources. Mobile Internet, the cloud and greener hosting are likely to continue to trend, but there may be new compatibility, censorship and security concerns beginning in 2012.

    SOPA and the Web Hosting Industry

    Online piracy and copyright infringement over the Internet have become increasingly problematic in the last few years. As a result, the United States government has proposed the Stop Online Piracy Act, which would give the government increased power to block websites that infringe and would increase penalties for those who violate copyright laws. Prior to this proposed legislation, artists, corporations, and a variety of professional associations filed lawsuits in order to protect their works, however, this technique has proved to be relatively ineffective at preventing piracy and infringement. Several groups, including the music recording industry and musicians, felt the public backlash of negative publicity due to their anti-infringement lawsuits. Internet culture has developed around the concepts of sharing and free access to information, which is why many people view such lawsuits and the proposed SOPA legislation as anti-libertarian and a threat to freedom of speech.
