Web hosting has grown so much over the past few years and so has the technology for the internet. Web Hosting was the thing to do when the internet was growing but now that is not enough. The new thing is cloud hosting and sharing content among different devices. This infographic shows how web hosting has changed over the years and what we can expect in the future.
Infographic Design: B
The design has an interesting color scheme that caught my eye. The purple on the grey really stands out and highlights certain information. The layout is a little scattered and hard to follow. The top information looked like a big collection of random information and I wasn’t sure where to read. Some of the graphics used looked out of date which I think went with what the information was talking about. The information went from old web hosting to the new cloud hosting information. I think the design showed the transition effectively and creatively by using better images as the infographic went down. I do have to say that the infographic as a whole looks really full and cluttered with information. I think that if you want to get people to read your infographic you need to make it easy to read and this is not. I have to look around and decided where to read because there is just so much going on.
Infographic Information: B+
The information in the infographic is interesting and shows how much the internet has changed over the years. Especially how sites are hosted and how they share information. Cloud hosting really is the newest thing and this infographic does have good information on it. I like how the information continues to the future and describes how it will affect technology in the next couple of years. I like that the infographic included a chart how keyword searches have changed from “web hosting” to “cloud hosting” which shows how well society is adapting with the new way of hosting. The information on how businesses use the servers to host sites was interesting and how with cloud hosting these servers are not as necessary. This will lead to a reduction in costs in the future if companies choose to use cloud hosting. Overall the information was good and informative for the reader.
