For 17 years the WHIR has published news, insights and thought leadership around web hosting, cloud computing, security, e-commerce and data centers. In many ways, we grew up with the industry. We followed small startups as they grew into billion-dollar companies and we chronicled web hosting prodigies as they moved from dorm rooms to data centers. Later, we marveled as millions migrated workloads to the cloud in a massive shift from on-premises infrastructure.
For many of us, the WHIR was the ride of a generation. But like all adventures, this one has come to an end. Today is the last day of publishing on the WHIR. What is more, our local WHIR networking events will cease.
For the past five years as editor of the WHIR, I have had the pleasure of engaging readers and supporters of this fantastic website. I enjoyed learning about the successes you have achieved in your businesses, and admired the many challenges you have overcome, including the rapidly changing market that is brimming with competition and churn.
As your businesses evolve, we believe that your information and events needs are better served through other brands in our Informa portfolio. This includes Web Hosting Talk, Channel Futures and Data Center Knowledge. If, for example, you seek detailed analysis of web hosting business and technology, then Web Hosting Talk will provide you the peer engagement and information you need. Likewise, Channel Futures is a place you can trust to give you the latest on technology

 

For many, this time of year means back to school and routine, but what fall represents to many in our business is the full swing of conference season. There are many conferences and trade shows coming up over the next couple of months as we work to wrap up a strong 2017 and set our sights on the technologies and trends that will define the hosting and cloud industry in 2018 and beyond.
THE MERGE SHOW is a new conference that takes place this October 14 – 18, 2017 in Orlando, Fla. which combines The Domain Conference, CMS Summit and a WHIR Networking Event for one major show that is not to be missed.

From the MERGE! website:
THE MERGE SHOW is a group of conferences – like a ‘worlds fair’ event – hosting different events within MERGE! (new and old) with technology and domain names at the core. One of these is the well attended THEDomain Conference, in its third year. A continuation of a long-standing gathering of a who’s who in the domain space. This event draws people to sunny Florida every fall, for its wealth of good networking, content, and opportunities, as well as being a who’s who of experts on appraisal, brokering, registries, registrars, domain advertising, registration, TLD Applications, email services and other investment opportunities.
Your MERGE SHOW Ticket covers access to all non-closed sessions at all the sub-events, the networking events, the seminars, and more.
THEDomainConference is just one of many other sub events,

 

DreamHost filed legal arguments Friday in opposition to a request by the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) for personally identifiable information, including IP addresses, for 1.3 million website visits, according to an announcement on the company’s blog.
DreamHost is the host of website disruptj20.org, which was dedicated to organizing protests during the inauguration of President Donald Trump on January 20. It received a grand jury subpoena soon after the inauguration and protests, and complied by providing the government with information about the website owner.
In July, the DOJ issuing a search warrant (PDF) to DreamHost seeking visitor logs, contact information, email content, and photos of thousands of people from the website. The company calls this attempt “a strong example of investigatory overreach and a clear abuse of government authority” in the blog post, and challenged the request in inquiries to the DOJ. The DOJ responded by filing a motion (PDF) to compel the host to comply with the warrant.
DreamHost received 466 requests for information from governments in 2014, and VP of Brand & Community Brett Dunst told the WHIR that the number of requests the company receives from law enforcement is reasonably consistent from year to year. The motion for disruptj20.org data is different from most law enforcement requests in procedure and scope, according to Dunst.
“It is unusual because the motion to compel came after we had basically asked for
