Hosting Professionals - Sign This Petition opposing PIPA!


The PROTECT-IP act would impose an untold litigation burden on web hosting providers, stifle innovation, diminish U.S. exports and diminish the security of the Internet.

Web hosting industry professionals need to speak out against this law. Your statement is powerful because you directly represent one of this economy’s largest growing sectors, which is directly threatened by PIPA.

Please sign the letter, and then get all of your web hosting Industry associates to sign it as well. Spread the word and help us make a difference.

This is scary.

The US government trying to take full control of the internet. Essentially they are now performing a massive-scale "man in the middle" attack. Best of luck with that one.

That's very odd. Send an email to getinvolved@savehosting.org and we'll help you get things sorted out.

We are seeing good momentum on this but we need to show more support from our Industry. If you doubt that these letters can help, please note that with this letter (and the one we plan to introduce next) we are generating exactly what the Congressional leaders on our side of this issue are asking us to generate, so that they can use the tools we provide to them directly to make their case about who our industry is, why it is important and why we are right to be concerned. This is not a feeble effort, this is a vital and important step in affecting direct public policy change, and providing people in Congress who are listening with the tools to help us directly. Please don't just sign - spread the word and get this signed by as many people in our industry as you can help us manage. It matters.
