    what happened to the dinix clients

    havent heard anything lately about it.

    what has happened to the dinix clients?

    were your sites ever restored?

    As you are talking about Dinix - isn't Dinix a division of American Pro Servers?

    I ask because all my websites, located at 209.152.184.64
    (9esolution.net, located at American Pro Servers) are down
    http://dnsreport.com/tools/dnsreport...esolution.net+

    9esolution.net is located at American Pro Servers, according to
    http://www.whois.sc/9esolution.net

    I can ping 209.152.184.64 and tracert seems to be ok, too.
    But Website, cPanel, Webmail are not working

    That's weird. One would thing after so long everything would be fine.
    Never argue with an idiot. They will drag you down to their level, then beat you with experience.

    Yeah, strange thing is that 9esolution.net is now at 209.152.184.65
    according to http://whois.webhosting.info/209.152.184.65

    while it has been at 209.152.184.64 before. Total confusion

    I remember that my websites were moved to a new server at American Pro earlier this year,
    from 209.152.162.189 to 209.152.184.64

    moved on - never looked back.

    Now hosting with Agilehosting. Great marks for agilehosting. Great support, uptime, transfer, etc. Incredibly happy and will be happy to tell anyone who wants to know.

    yeah for reasons beyond my control, we are still with them.


    But if you look at our website you will see that it's dead. along with http://dinix.com and http://webhostplus.com

    Gotta love it

    Can't even log in to place a support ticket. Well, you'd think that they would know if their whole network went down.....

    Looks like dinix went down the hill after being sold to webhostplus. What a shame , I hope you all had your own personal backup.

    Good luck to all of Dinix/WebHostplus clients

    I left during the disaster of a move Easter weekend.
    My old server's still up, still sending out status messages...empty as it can be, almost 2 months after we canceled it.

    I've since hooked up with a couple of quality data centers, found an exellent server management company, and brought in a couple of interns to handle the design-side of the biz. Ain't ready to put in a bid for Micro$oft yet, but the fall out of the Dinix/WHP mess forced me out of my comfort zone, and as a result, business is up, and and the future is looking bright.

    Glad to hear that you survived. Keep rockin', man. Who did you wind up with, if I may ask?

    I had one of client's server with DINIX for over 2 yrs, and I do take daily backups which saved the day for me and my client.

    Oh yea, I did chargeback for 1 month since I had some 9 days of downtime, and requested the cancellation!

    Other than that, WebHostPlus still sends the invoices which I dun give a damn about.

    LaurenStephens.com, can you share the whole story about what exactly had happened? I was busy back than so didnt go through all the posts but i think you had mentioned something about racks falling down from the truck n stuff.

    So sad to see stories like this... Gives the whole industry a black eye.

    I ended up with RackNine and NAC. I'm using ServerWizards for management. A little less "talkative" than I'd like, but I put in a ticket, and it's fixed. No hours of back n forth, just, fixed. We've now got our sites across 3 servers, dual backups. Tis all cool.

    I haven't been this pleased with things since I first signed with VO.
    Good hardware, good support, no BS.

    Downsides:
    NAC's support is email only, and sometimes things get a little confused, but overall it's been good.

    Re: Re: what happened to the dinix clients

    I worked for dinix for a 5 month period ( knowing something was wrong because 2 people left the company before I got there). I came into work one day and I was the last person to know that dinix was being sold to New Jersey. I was denied unemployment because I ď left the company Ē. I did not want to worry about getting paid for my last 2 weeks if I worked them. Donít get me wrong dinix was a great company to work ( great techs ) for but they dicked me over on unemployment. I donít know anything else but 2 techs moved from there to a new webhost. As usual for tech .

    I hope you have sufficient backups to continue your businesses.

    Its horrable when you have your site fully developed and the webhost crashes or goes under. I just hope they have backups.
