The month of June starts with some very bad news. A few minutes ago, the Entrecard team sent me the following email:

Greetings,

Unfortunately, there has been an electrical fire at the data center housing Entrecard’s servers. The servers have not been damaged, but the site may be down for as long as 12 hours.

Entrecard is hosted with ThePlanet, and this fire has effected over 9000 websites, as many of the world’s most popualar websites are hosted with ThePlanet. They are working around the clock to get their data center back online, and we are hoping that they get it back online fast.

Thank you for your pateince and understanding with this rare and frustrating problem. Unfortunately, there is absolutely nothing we can do but wait for The Planet to get their datacenter back online.
Please check back with Entrecard in 12 to 24 hours.

Thanks,

Entrecard Team

I have also found out that Statcounter is down. Is it because of the same problem?Can someone, in the know, share with us the names of the sites that have been affected by this problem?

UPDATE

Statcounter is up now.They have confirmed that several of their servers are down and service is limited because of an outage at The Planet. They further advise that some stats will be lost during this time.
