John's service will be missed. RIP another great webhosting provider.
I got an email today, saddens me to hear it, but it looks like Frostyhost and all it's affiliated services will be shutting down. Here is the email: (i am assuming he meant November, not october)
This server will be closing as of October 1, 2004.
Some of you recieving thids notice have a different provider other than
Frostyhost and need to contact your provider.
FreeWHM customers, Frostyhost clients and customers, and WhereToLook
customers will be affected by this change.
In approxomately 2 weeks Frostyhost and its satellite services will be
terminated. This includes FreeWM and WhereToLook.
All customers and clients of these services must find a new provider
before this time to avoid downtime. To avoid any loss of data please
backup your entire site including the databases as soon as possible. The
server is paid for until the end of the month so all data will be
available until that time.

profit status for about 3 months and I am unwilling to run it as-is.
** have started a new job that requires a great deal of my time. In all
fairness I cannot run this business successfully and with the qualty
you have expected.
** The server has been under increasing successful attack by malicious
hackers and I cannot devote the time to prevent these continual
intrusions. I have also had to pay extra for specialists since even my
provider refuses to admit there is a problem. I cannot afford these extra
costs any more.
** I will NOT sell Frostyhost or the satellite services since I hope
that once my new position settiles down I WILL have the time to revive
them with the level of quality and service expected and needed from a
Please accept my sincere apologies for such short notice! I was hoping
to extend the service through this transistion phase for me. But I have
not had the time to even get online and assist my volunteers with the
If you have any questions, email firstname.lastname@example.org and I will do my
best to answr every email received.
My best wishes to you all in the future.

I am the Steve Gorkes that sent out that email, I am sorry, but all the data is gone, the server went down as stated, on November 1st.....
