I am based in the UK and have a dedicated server with Burton Hosting. Our server has gone down, normally I can easily get through to someone but their phones (UK and US) are dead, they just hang up. No-one is answering the support tickets, or looking at the forum. This is completely unlike them (normally can get through within 30 seconds) and I fear the worst. I have been trying since 9am UK time (5 hours). Does anyone know what's up, or have another phone number, other than those listed on their website?
Yeah, usually when the line is dead like that it doesn't come back. Most of the time, someone else would be given the phone number. Like David said, it's a bad bad sign. Usually it means they are going down. There have been several companies that went like that. Jatol was like that, as well as another. The servers were up, but the phone lines were dead, and slowly the servers started going down and then people realized that they were in trouble.
