Web Hosting Infographic Shows Evolution

Web hosting looks very different today than it did 20 years ago. In 1991, when "www" was first released to the public, you needed to purchase and manage your own computer or server to host a website. Today, you can find basic web hosting services from thousands of hosting providers for less than the cost of a week's worth of coffee. Remember when names like GeoCites, Angelfire and Tripod actually mean't something? Now, they've been replaced by far more robust, intuitive free hosted solutions like YouTube for videos and Wordpress for blogs and websites. But that's not all. The underlying technology has completely evolved in the decades since, where Cloud is now the present and future of web hosting and software delivery.
