    I've never really heard of that company before..but some steps you can take:

    - Try emailing them
    - Do a whois look up on the domain and find a telephone number...try calling it.
    - Might be a good idea to start searching for another host.

    A week's downtime without notifying clients is not acceptable...

    Never heard of them either, and the whois isn't very useful either (http://195.66.240.211/cgi-bin/whois.....co.uk&x=0&y=0)

    Looks to me like another 'fly by night' host run by a 13 year old from his bedroom. I hope you have a backup of your site, as I highly doubt they'll be coming back anytime soon.

    Well, their domain looks like it is on a heart-internet reselller account, along with a couple of thousand other domains - so maybe yours is amongst them ?

    You could *try* ringing heart and seeing if they could grant you access to your files, while you look for a replacement host

    I'm afraid a refund is very unlikely - how much did you pay? For your next host, you might want to have a read around these forums and choose one that is reputable & has been around for a number of years.

    That domain is a bit more useful

    A quick whois (http://whois.sc/rjcuk.net) shows that their address and phone number is:
    RJCUK Hosting Limited
    22 Woodside Street
    Carrbrook
    Stalybridge, Cheshire SK153SB
    United Kingdom
    01457835186 Fax -- 01457835186

    You might want to pick up the phone and call them.

    You can also order the personal address of the companies directors from http://wck2.companieshouse.gov.uk/68...0//compdetails for about $2, so it might be worth it
