Hosting Industry History Outlined with Facebook Timeline

(Ping! Zine Web Tech Magazine) – Industry enthusiasts in web hosting now have an organized way to relive, track and address past and present happenings.

WebHostingHistory.org was recently launched by industry insider Ben Fisher, notable for his work at The Hosting News.

When you visit, don’t anticipate any ordinary website. The domain actually makes use of the Timeline feature from popular social network Facebook and lists the industry’s most significant events when they happened.

“The History of Web Hosting technologies and companies have shaped the Web Hosting Industry since the 80’s and spawned billions of dollars in acquisitions as well as technologies that affect almost everyones’ lives,” comments Fisher via the Facebook page’s description.

Emphasizing timeline’s ability to show industry growth, Fisher states, “The intention of the Timeline is to cover the founding, acquistions and major milestones of Hosting companies and technologies.” History of Web Hosting, meanwhile, is reaching out to others in the industry for contribution.
