(The Hosting News) – OOPS! It appears a top web host has accidentally outed itself regarding a top secret project it has in the works. Last Wednesday, IX Web Hosting confirmed that a top secret document pertaining to its company had been leaked.
“We were advised not to comment, but it seems we’re past the point of staying quiet. Before you base your opinion on some bad reporting you saw elsewhere, check out these redacted materials for yourself,” stated IX via its blog.
Meanwhile, the company disclosed a redacted letter titled to the company’s CEO, whose name remained obscured thanks to careful editing from the web hosting team.
“The completion of [obscured]IX is almost final. We are ent[obscured]g the last stages of b[obscured] t[obscured] testing, and so far, the r[obscured] has been overwhelmingly p[obscured]ve,” read part of the text.
Other redacted parts of the letter appear to cover a project that features the ability to update billing profiles and new domains. At The Hosting News, we’d guess it’s some kind of control panel. But who are to contemplate considering another part of the document was so heavily edited to where it only said, “We will soon a[obscured]nce the relea[obscured] date of this new [obscured]ntrol pan[obscured].”
Concerning any further details, it appears the company is (…or isn’t) content with keeping its lips sealed. Well, at least for the time being. “Nope. Not even a little bit,” stated IX Web Hosting Public Relations Manager Mack Jensen when asked if he could reveal further details regarding whatever the project is.
Jensen, meanwhile, doesn’t appear too good at keeping secrets. Upon further investigating the leak, we came across another one of his odd answers contained within the Q&A. “Look, a document may or may not have been leaked and posted online. It may or may not be about IX’s brand new control panel, which may or may not feature an entirely new interface, customization options, and helpful new tools. Tools that may not even be there. And my name may or may not be Mack Jensen. However, I simply can’t comment on these things at this time. Plus, you can’t believe everything you hear on the internet, that’s how the Civil War got started,” he stated when pressed further.
So is the answer a new hosting control panel? One can only guess…
