vividk--only the second time? I've been with Vincent & Co. for maybe a year or two less than you have (at least three years, maybe four), and this has happened twice now in the past month alone!
Just thought I'd sign up for an account here and chime in as well--I also have two different web sites hosted with jv-hosting and haven't been able to get to them for several days. There was also an "outage" a couple of weeks back, I think, that lasted for several days.
jv-hosting is DEFINITELY a "you get what you pay for" sort of deal.
I just hope everything comes back up long enough for me to get my database tables, download a full copy of all my files, and get out of Dodge and find somebody else.
I've been less-than-thrilled with Vincent, to say the least. The fact that his billing system makes you essentially "overdue" the day your bill is due is somewhat bothersome as well.
At any rate, I guess we'll have to just hang in there and see how it goes....
