I had my site running for a more than a month now calanhost.com. I had decided on this host because of the price and also they had good reviews. Now from last 4 days out of the blue my site is totally down and i cannot contact them or check my mail. Even their own site is not working now. I tried to call the Tech Support and it says leave a message and then it says the box is full.... Now i dont know what to do. Is there anything that can be done here. Any one hosting currently on calanhost.com.
Thanks you all for your suggestions.. Yes now i also thinking of packing bags and leaving them... I had put in alot of effort in making my flash site and putting it online and now all wasted.. And i made a mistak of not taking back ups although i have all the files but my guestbook entries are gone now ... Yes i paid them for year ... I am now planning to host at discountasp.net.What do u guys say?
Give them a chance to get back up before doing a chargeback. If they are reputable they will refund your money. Make sure you find a new host if this is not your style of hosting. And like they all said pay monthly and dont get penalyzed for paying monthly by paying a setup fee.
I have already started to look at other hosting options.. I cant wait now. Its been 5 days now and thats too long. Atleast they should have informed if they had problems with the server but it dosent seem so.. I think they have shut!! Its bad luck to us Flii...
Can anyone suggest good reliable windows hosting.. I found Exovian.com and Discountasp.net good.. Now Exovian has mixed bag review here.. So now i am confused should i host with them or not.. Any suggestions..
Thank You all for the help.. Now i dont want to try and contact calanhost.com. Its waste of time and i wasted enough time trying to get in touch with them... Anyway planning to host with exovian.net.... And will go with monthly payment
If a host doesn't give you any warning about being down for maintenance or anything, pack your bags and leave and like they said here, never pay yearly. I never do. Always backup your website files and be ready for a quick move. The pain is waiting for the the nameservers to go to the new host.
Some of these hosting companies are here today and gone tomorrow.
