Hello Web Hosting Talk Members!

As you'll notice, we've redesigned the newsletter to focus more on the great discussions happening inside our community at Web Hosting Talk. We hope you like the new layout. As always, you're welcome to post your feedback in our forum.

I don't know about you, but where I live, the weather's been rather hectic of late. It reminds me of WHT in that it's generally quite mild, but then there are times when it heats up and spawns large, aggressive storms full of rain, wind, thunder, and lightning.

We see this happen in the hosting industry as well. Things are generally calm. But something always happens that reminds us that we're all human. Web hosting is humans serving humans. And, since humans are driven by emotions, trying times can be difficult for both consumers and providers.

Companies, large and small, are subject to turbulent moments in time. The last couple of weeks have been no exception. We've seen two large notable providers being discussed for starkly different reasons. For those who weren't involved in those discussions, we've included links to those threads in our Notable Threads table below.

We hope you enjoy this first version of our new layout. Thanks for helping make Web Hosting Talk the great community it is.

'Til next time,

Dennis Johnson (aka SoftWareRevue)
iNET Community Coordinator
