Another web hosting giant was hit by a fire

Los Angeles-based web hosting provider WebNX recently experienced a fire at its Ogden data center in Utah, which took the websites of some of its users offline.

Unlike the large fire that recently took the French web host OVH offline, WebNX’s problems began with power outages across the city. As is often the case in such a situation, the company’s backup generators are automatically turned on after a power outage. However, one of the older spare generators caught fire and the Ogden fire service was called.
