    Seems they have gone again, taking a VPS down with all clients and data, no ticket responses, yada yada...

    Anyone heard anything - hopefully?

    For what it's worth, they still haven't charged on any of the invoices. They just keep crediting them. LOL!!

    It looks like their site is up, but the billing system is throwing a database error. Gosh, what a mess.

    Just would have to happen when I finally get some time to do some work lol...

    He is forgetting that it WAS paid for. It was paid for using the credits they themselves put on the account. ROFL! I love it.

    Hope you don't get one of these then :)

    Badly spelled, bad grammar and no idea that TOS doesn't include incompetence and failure to be capable to provide what is advertised :lol:

    So 'Joe' has a strop and your VPS gets deleted, he found it really quick after taking a week to 'not' find it :rolleyes2

    His English is poor and that's the greater problem of him.

    That's really bad when support doesn't know English well.

    If the host can't speak English he shouldn't offer hosting to English speaking people.

    After review their letter, I sure many customers want to get away more than keep services with them.

    For any webhosting provider, their support staff should be able to explain in simple but grammatically correct English.
