(Gawkwire) – XLHost (http://www.xlhost.com), a leading dedicated server provider based in Columbus, OH announced today that it has joined the Internet Infrastructure Coalition (i2Coalition), a group of global Internet infrastructure providers and technology firms who support the growth of the Internet.
“The best services being built on the Internet today allow the user to forget that there is a massive network of networks between the user and the service provider,” said Drew Weaver, XLHost Chief Technology Officer. “Instead, the user is able to spend more time focusing on entertainment or productivity. Creating better and frictionless user experiences will require a higher level of cooperation and understanding from industry participants, public policy makers, and the general public. This is why XLHost is thrilled to be a part of the I2Coalition”.
The i2Coalition’s more than 50 members worldwide include domain registrars, datacenter operators, software companies, media companies, and cloud service providers such as XLHost.
“i2Coalition welcomes XLHost to the team as we continue to educate policy makers about the nuts and bolts of the Internet,” said Christian Dawson, i2Coalition co-founder and Board Chair. “XLHost’s expertise in cloud service providing as well as other areas brings another experienced voice to the table as we advocate for an open Internet, and we are excited to have them join us as we continue to discuss the important issues facing our industry and the Internet in general.”
