The site was closed for a 'routine server change'. I was (and still am until I can find somewhere new) hosted on a reseller purchased from hostnsurf. Somehow this reseller owner forgot to backup, and didn't tell me it was going to happen. Makes me grumpy!!
The website is a personal blog type site. Have a look if you want! OhLovely.Org!
Thanks for the good advice.
I did have a back up, but not recent enough to make me happy.
I guess I just posted this because a lot of the companies around here are heavy-weights compared to me & my little site!
I realise people can't directly link to themselves in here now, but pointers in the right direction never hurt?!
Sad to hear you didnt have a recent backup, almost all hosts will have disclaimers on the backups, but many of them will make good backups never the less. I am afraid you ran into one who did not. Some also offer off-site backups to make the chance of loosing information even smaller.
There are indeed a lot of heavy-weight companies, but they do not need to be bad, just not personal anymore.
You are right, host can not advertise here, for that you have to take a look in the offer section or use the 'find a host' button on top of the page. But i am sure you will find some good hosts around. Contact them personally if you are in doubt, or in need of something they do not seem to offer. I am sure most will be able to help you out.
