The co-founder of Google, Sergey Brin, is concerned about the lack of web freedom. He believes that applications and networks such as Facebook are making things less widely available to the outside world because they prevent certain information from being picked up by search engines. This is not the lack of internet freedom which was disputed in regards to the SOPA bill in the US, which would have affected web hosts such as Blue host, but more to do with how information is governed onlin. In an interview with the Guardian, Brin said:
As web designers, who also run some of our websites, we know web hosting is a crucial part to how a website gets up and running. There are specialist web hosts such as Blue host, as well as the likes of Hostgator, but big multinational technology companies such as AT&T, IBM, Dell and Apple are also involved in the business. Even the likes of Amazon.com have a small hosting arm.
