Earthlink's Corporate Blog Hosted Offsite
18th January, 2005
Apparently not. The Earthlink Protection Blog is hosted by Six Apart on its TypePad blog hosting service, which is in turn hosted in an Internap data center in San Jose.
Earthlink has chosen to use protectionblog.net instead of the protectionblog.com domain, which is currrently housed at Pair Networks, a shared hosting provider that presumably might compete with Earthlink for shared hosting customers. Both domains were registered through Pair's PairNIC registration service, even though Earthlink also sells domains.
At least Earthlink can be glad it isn't hosted at Internap's Seattle colocation facility, which houses Six Apart's LiveJournal blogging service. The Internap facility at Fisher Plaza lost all power Friday (apprently due to the failure of a UPS power backup system), which led to LiveJournal and its estimated 2.5 million bloggers offline for more than 24 hours.
