Last week our team traveled to scenic Denver, CO to sponsor and exhibit at the 10th annual cPanel Conference. The three-day event was full of informative sessions, keynotes, and training courses for hosting providers. In the exhibitor hall, our team had the chance to reconnect with long-time partners and meet several of our newer users. Our friends at SoftLayer held the ever popular Server Challenge II, where players reconstructed a scaled down version of their servers. The fun continued into the evening with networking events that included a raffle at Casino Night, dancing and games at The Viewhouse, and a brewery tour of the Wynkoop Brewing Company.
One of the highlights of the conference was Co-founder and CEO of CloudFlare Matthew Prince's keynote, The Next Crypto Wars: What Every Host Needs to Know. As we head into the second Crypto War, a battle between technologists and policy makers, it’s important for you to understand the history behind the first, how the second will affect you as a hosting provider, and how to adequately prepare your business for all possible scenarios.
