SANTA ROSA, CA--(Marketwire - Sep 18, 2012) - Arvixe (www.arvixe.com), a leading web hosting provider, announced today that it will join the Internet Infrastructure Coalition (i2Coalition) which officially launches this week. With 42 current member companies, the i2Coalition is comprised of key players representing global and U.S. Internet infrastructure providers and related tech firms.
The i2Coalition supports the trailblazing enterprises that make significant private investments and drive innovation for the "nuts and bolts" of the Internet -- including web hosting and data center providers, registries and registrars, software and service delivery and cloud computing services. The genesis of the organization began in 2011, when many of the i2Coalition's founding and charter members joined forces during the successful effort to prevent Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) and the Protect IP Act (PIPA) from becoming law.
"Arvixe is proud to be a founding member of the i2Coalition," said Arvand Sabetian, CEO of Arvixe. "Businesses across the globe use our hosting infrastructure to provide products and solutions to their customers. Along with our fellow i2Coalition members, we're dedicated to ensuring that the Internet reaches its full potential as an economic growth engine and a source of innovation."
The i2Coalition members share a common goal: to be the principle voice and leading advocate for the Internet infrastructure industry. The coalition will facilitate public policy education and advocacy, develop market-driven standards formed by consensus and give the industry a unified voice. Members will receive the support and tools they need to be heard in Washington and by their state and local officials across the country.

"We believe the continued expansion of the Internet is vital for fostering economic growth in the U.S.," said Christian Dawson, i2Coalition co-founder and Board Chair. "The i2Coalition will serve as a liaison between its members, the public they serve and policymakers to ensure that the Internet infrastructure industry continues to harness the full potential it has for creating jobs and driving innovation in the United States."
The Internet Infrastructure Coalition (i2Coalition) supports those who build the nuts and bolts of the Internet, and we treat it like the noble profession that it is. We believe the continued growth of the Internet is vital for growing an environment of innovation in America and seek to engage in ways to foster success of the Internet and Internet infrastructure industry. We seek to influence decision makers to weigh decisions on whether they are good or bad for the Internet economy and its foundational industries. In short, we seek to foster growth within the Internet infrastructure industry by driving others to harness the Internet's full potential. To learn more about i2Coalition, visit www.i2Coalition.com.
