What is Net Neutrality?
Net neutrality is the First Amendment of the Internet. It’s the fundamental principle that makes the net a level playing field where everyone has a voice. It’s the secret ingredient that makes the Internet so delicious, fun, and weird. Here at Namecheap, we want to keep the Internet free and open.
When corporations have the power to choose what we can and can’t see on the Internet, we lose one of the basic underpinnings of a free society: free access to information. Namecheap believes in a free and open Internet and will fight to preserve it.
Allowing ISPs to discriminate between different types of content would require them to conduct more invasive monitoring of their networks. Namecheap strives to provide tools and resources to ensure that our users’ privacy is protected.
Over the years, Namecheap has openly opposed efforts to censor the net. In the past, acts like CISPA have cropped up, which would allow governments and private companies to monitor and censor the web. Namecheap will continue to stand tall against Internet censorship!
