Key Web Hosting & Network Management Trends for 2015

Key Web Hosting

According to most experts, the modern incarnation of the World Wide Web was conceived in 1989, when Tim Berners-Lee created a proposal that outlined the contemporary Internet as we know it today, approximately 20 years after the first connection was established online.

This means that the web quietly celebrated its 25th anniversary in 2014, although the level of innovation and technological advancement that is present today means that the Internet is scarcely recognizable from its prototype creation.

Web Hosting and the Key Trends

While the emergence of social media, real-time communication technology and the Internet of Things (IoT) have all revolutionized the way in which we use the Internet, however, we also live in an age where we are at the mercy of sophisticated cyber-thieves and hackers. As a result of this, the web hosting and network management sectors are central to a number of important trends in 2015. These include the following:

The Rise of All-in-one Website Publishing

Recently, the web hosting and network management markets have been dominated by all-in-one service providers such as Squarespace, Weebly and Wix. The popularization of these sites began after they started to improve the range and quality of their services, paying particular attention to the depth of customer service that they offered and the security of their hosting platforms. So although separate publishing platforms such as WordPress and Joomla remain Omni-potent, 2015 may be the year that all-in-one web hosting services begin to supersede their dominance.

Cloud Hosting Becomes the Industry Standard

When Cloud computing first emerged as a viable technology, some business owners were resistant to its benefits. This is because they were wary of hosting large volumes of potentially sensitive data online, regardless of the significant cost savings available through Cloud computing. As Cloud platforms have become increasingly sophisticated and secure, however, an estimated 63% of all organizations have integrated them into their business model. This year will see Cloud-based web hosting resources emerge as a secure and reliable industry standard that helps ventures to scale quickly but at significantly reduced costs.

The Internet of Things will Revolutionize Web Hosting and Network Management

While the Internet of Things may be a relatively new concept, its impact has already been pronounced across various industries. It is during 2015 that it will begin to revolutionize the hosting sector, however, with leading firms such as Intel and Cisco Systems estimating that the IoT will comprise of an estimated 26 billion units and have a value of $300 billion by the year 2020. In terms of functionality, the IoT will enable websites to be accessed through both traditional smart devices and items such as cars, furniture, appliances and even wearable technology. As a result, the level of data and bandwidth generated will force companies to enhance the capacity of their Cloud-based servers and underpin this with advanced security measures.
