It looks like the more we advance, the more restrictions we face.
Capitalism, the unbeatable desire for money and power, makes us fight for instances that are naturally perceived as fundamental rights. The internet is where we go to find out how many grams are in one cup, who’s the president of the USA, or how to start a business and earn money online. It has completely transformed the way we create, discover, and learn.
At Hostinger we are always hungry for knowledge, searching for ways to perfect our services and products so that we could provide you with the best user experience. Net neutrality plays a huge role in making it all happen. Without it, Hostinger would probably be inaccessible to you.
Therefore, Hostinger stands for net neutrality and supports everyone fighting for it. The realization of our vision and mission is strictly dependent on the free flow of information online. Only with independent online traffic, we can enable you to unlock the power of the internet by offering easy and simple web hosting solutions.
By using fast lanes, throttling, blocking certain content, or making it only available for a certain price, ISPs are affecting not just our daily lives, but the economy too.
The customer is our primary focus and their success online is what matters to us the most. Without the free internet, the competition in the online market is going to disappear as it will be impossible for small businesses to establish a profitable online presence. The market dominated by the big players will become inaccessible to starters, and start to shrink. Appearing on the first page of Google search results is going to be useless. With net neutrality, every business, startup, or website can compete equally.
At Hostinger we strive to provide high-quality services to web developers, tech newbies, and small business owners – everyone in a need of a website. However, web hosting is only the first step towards a successful online presence. SEO and digital marketing are necessary to create an online presence and transform it into something powerful. Without optimizing your website for search engines, using digital marketing means, or having an equal ground to compete, your success online will not be possible. By its very nature, non-neutrality destroys the competition net neutrality has created over the years of the free internet. Net neutrality empowers small businesses to compete with such brands as Amazon, Netflix, or Twitter.
With the internet restricted and controlled by a few big corporations, it will become an oligarchy. As a result, it will only benefit those that have the money to play the game. On top of the massive harm imposed to SEO, digital marketing, and our democracy, the internet controlled by ISPs is also a threat to any social movement. How would we find out about new disruptive technologies, startups, or genius business ideas? How would we fight against oppression, organize political campaigns, or unite people towards one goal? A social activist is only able to gather thousands of people in the streets to fight the cause in minutes when their messages aren’t blocked, and their website isn’t down.
Freedom and responsibility drive Hostinger further. They unleash creativity and the potential to grow. They advance the technology letting you perceive a better quality of life. Freedom online means the ability to express yourself without any restrictions and be visible to millions. To keep the internet free is our responsibility and we are in this fight with you.
Hostinger was built with the idea to help EVERYONE unlock the power of the internet without any discrimination. We believe that everyone is equally entitled to the same opportunities and possibilities online. Revoking net neutrality would likely impose geographic and economic discrimination, leaving everyone unable to access certain content online for free, as opposed to free and unrestricted cyberspace worldwide.
Our customers are creators. They come to us and put their trust and ideas in our hands. They want to build websites, create apps and brands, develop businesses. More so they want to be successful at it. At Hostinger we are responsible for the prosperous realization of their ideas. We want them to have an equal chance at success as all the big players have. Non-neutral internet naturally deprives everyone of such rights by creating a biased and expensive market that is entirely dependent on those who have the money and power to dominate it. The internet must stay free.
By providing you with the highest quality product, features, and stellar customer support, we encourage you to continue to rock the internet with your own ideas.
