Ouch! That sounds bad; you must be frustrated. I hope it works out. I favorably recommend Blue Host.

is there anyone else on this list who has sites hosted at the canadian company ultrahosting? i have my sites there because way back in 2002 i signed up for a rhizome fundraiser, where they partnered with a company called broadspire to provide web hosting for artists & rhizome got a small cut from every customer. over the years broadspire got bought out or merged a couple of times & at some point turning into ultrahosting.

since last wednesday my sites have vanished from the web - i can still see the files via ftp, & email is working, but my sites are offline & i can't access the plesk control panel or mysql. i raised a support ticket & got the automated reply, but nothing further. in the past they have been pretty good at responding within a few hours - now it's almost a week.

i called the company a couple of times on friday & sat on hold for ages then left a message. no-one has called back. i've hunted on their website for other contact details & emailed sales & careers, but no response. the website has no notice of any major problem. i followed links to their twitter & fb accounts & found these defunct. the blog on their website isn't working & some of the contact forms fail. it's all a bit mysterious & suspicious!

so, while i set about finding a new hosting company (any recommendations?) i just wondered if anyone else on this list is also with ultrahosting & perhaps having similar problems?
