Give Your Website a Free Speech-Friendly Home

There are countless web hosting services that will help you get your site on the Internet. But do you know what to expect if someone decides to dispute your speech with a nastygram to your web host?

Jimmy Atkinson's first post to the Dedicated Hosting Guide may be a good place to start looking for answers. Titled "Free Speech Hosting: 11 Web Hosts That Won't Dump You at the First Sign of Controversy," Atkinson lists a few hosts that advertise defense of free speech as an important part of their business plan.

We're pleased that individuals like Atkinson are publishing resources to support rights-conscious businesses and customers, and that free speech and privacy are increasingly important value propositions in the market, as evidenced by recent announcements by various search engines about changes to protect users' privacy.
