Valuablehost down again??????


This is just insane. After being down for weeks at Christmas, VH finally got their act together for a couple of weeks or so. My site was running quickly and reliably.

Now it's been down for two days, my domain name is unresolvable (stodge.net). To cap it all, their billing system (help desk) and forums are inaccessible and they've removed the link to the forums from their front page.

All servers are reported as being up and running (yeah right!).

Why was I foolish enough to stay with them?

Anyone else suffering this?

Do you have this site on a dedicated ip,, so perhaps you can tell if its just the dns servers down ?

They say "3rd time is the charm" , But I don't believe that applies in web hosting..

DNS is definitely not responding from what I see. Call them, they have a toll free number.

I can see both the forum and the billing site... but not your site.

Anyway, everything around VH sounds fishy, still waiting to know who this Marc and his company are. If I were you I would move to another host (I just keep my account because it's one of those old cheap grandfathered and for testing is ok to have )

Good luck!

I'm not at home so I really can't do much more until I get home.

Thanks

The problem appears to be DNS related. Have you contacted Valueablehost to report the problem?

Just running a search on your posts and this particular company, you seem to start a thread every month or two talking about them being down for an extended period of time.

If you're that displeased with them, why do you continue hosting your site there?

Just curious...

Weird.

Why would he have to report it? If they cared about their systems and clients they would have bothered to fix it when the problem initially started 48 hours ago.
