Yes, the number one web hosting company in the world is now gone and I’m toooooo damn late to know it. They merged with Softlayer last year! Yes guys! Last year and I just found out about it now! I just noticed it today because I typed theplanet.com in my address bar and I was being redirected to softlayer.com. It was announced last November 8, 2010 and I haven’t heard of the news about it! Silly me. At first, I thought stupidly that they were hacked by Softlayer, because these two large web hosting companies are the top 2 hosting companies in the world and they are on a tight competition.
