Fire at ThePlanet knocks out 9000 website

Dallas based ThePlanet suffered a major setback yesterday as an electrical fire allegedly caused an explosion, knocking out around 9000 of their customers hosted websites.

Apparently there was an electrical fire at ThePlanet’s H1 data center in Houston Texas. According to some sources there was an actual explosion powerful enough that it knocked down walls in an equipment room. So far there are no reports of damage to servers or networking equipment but power is offline at the facility and approximately 9000 websites are affected. This will surely be all over the tech news websites by morning, Marcus Langenveld.
