Rihost aka 199streams.com mia, now crossfire-hosting
I had an account with rihost aka 199streams.com and just got an invoice to make a payment on my service with rihost aka 199streams and checking their site, it says " This Account Has Been Suspended ".
My site is gone but they wanted me to still make a payment. Imagine that.
So, checking rihost.com, their old name warps over to a new site called crossfire-hosting offering all the same old stuff from 199streams.
Ya think the guy would have emailed me and said, look man, were gonna pull the plug. But no, he didn't. Instead I got invoiced for another payment for service not rendered.
A bit weird they really should of gave you the heads up and let you know what's going on with your services. Do you have any latest back ups from your site(s) containing any data what so ever?
Ya, no word on the impending switcheroo. I had an icecast service with him as 199streams.com and nothing indicated he was going to whack the service. I did go to the crossfire-hosting.com site and it tells a small tale how they merged with rihost in 2013 but the merger probably was to clear low profit income streams from the package hoping a customer would buy the same deal at the new price higher price.
Unfortunately, that failed cause they should have contacted the customer and tried a peace offering to stay plugged in, but they didn't and that shows they don't care. So, the just go away approach seems to be their SOP.
I just noticed 199streams has an ebay auction for shoutcast and icecast accounts 2.99 a month with 1.99 for a years payed up front. Suspicously weird
It might be a good old FIRE sale! The building is on fire and all goods must go.
I would post a link but board wont let me.
google Microsoft In Talks To Buy Shoutcast
Never heard of any of the two.
Well now, it keeps getting better for the worst, as this story would go.
I get several emails from 199streams after the suspension of their website and my icecast service.
They send an email my second invoice payment is over due 12/8. I can login to my account it says, only I can't since they are suspended as is my icecast page.
12/9 I get a suspension notice:
This is a notification that your service has now been suspended. The details of this suspension are below, over due payment.
I see they are back online with 199streams.com so ok, I'll send a reply to the suspension email back to 199streams since their system sent me this.
Lo and behold:
