ATN: WebHosting Talk thread discusses simultaneous shutdown of 20+ web hosting providers

ATN: Business failures in the cloud and in related businesses are relatively rare: unpublished research by InsightaaS found that over a five-year period, just less than 10% of Canadian cloud services providers and about 5% of IaaS/PaaS providers shut down operations. But there are ‘buyer-beware’ corners of the online world. WebHosting Talk has a fascinating – if scary – thread about last week’s simultaneous closure of more than 20 hosting operations. Well worth the read, as a community of knowledgeable professionals react to the announcements and lessons learned.
