    What happened to phpbb-host.com?

    From 5 or 6 days, the site phpbb-host.com and all forums hosted on it are not working. Is there any way i can find out what's wrong? I have a forum hosted there since more than 1 year, and I'm desperate! PLEASE help me if you can, and if my topic is in the wrong forum, I'm sorry, please move it to where it belongs.
    Thank you in advance.

    It looks like phpbb-host.com was a reseller of galaxywave.net. Galaxywave.net's domain expired on the 6th of november, this is why your site isn't working. You better find a new host, looks like your host is gone.

    Sorry, and I wish you much luck with your next host!

    Oh f***!!!! This is VERY bad.....
    Is there any chance, to get the database from them? I mean, if there will be no forum hosting, they don't need the databases if they still have them.
    Oh, this is just.... i have no words. They didn't say anithing....

    I wrote to Nightwar, because his e-mail is not a part of galaxywave, and he wrote me back this: "all forums will be back online by tommorow morning".

    Or you could access your control panel via IP address, that may work.

    From ISP cached responses the IP of phpbb-host.com is 208.51.9.5 you can more than likely access their control panel via IP (I'd highly suggest taking backups asap whether you intend to move or not).

    Best of luck in getting your site back online.

    You can't do this without the DNS pointing properly. PhpBB-Host still looks to be down, I would recommend you start looking for a new host.

    I wouldn't think that would be possible since the IP is not responding as well.

    SkyNet unfortunately as it was stated it appeared to be a dns issue I hadn't bothered to check if the IP was up or not previous to posting. Unfortunately it does look in fact as though it is the server itself being down as well.
