Ali Asghar Ansari, the manager of network development of the Information Technology Organization of Iran (ITC), told that Iran has got first place in web hosting in the Middle East and North Africa beating Turkey to the second place.


In the world, it is at number four by hosting 65% of the popular sites that are visited by the Iranians. This got possible because of the policies of the government there, which support internet servers and also gets it cost efficient.

According to him, “One of the benefits of domestic data centres for content providers is that they can directly connect to the IXP port”. Nearly 57% of the population of Iran are net users as per an estimate.
