    VO hacked

    3 of my sites on Ventures Online were hacked along with everyone else on the server. They put a list of the sites the server when I logged in:

    [Edit: Took down the list of sites since you can't see the hacked pages anymore]

    My guess is somebody really got on the wrong side of this hacker so he got into VO's webserver and posted all his personal details in the hope he would get in trouble!!

    Are you sure it's overwritten? I dont' think it's overwritten. Perharps the default working directory of your site (and everybody else) has been redirected to different directory and hence the index.html loaded is not of yours or anybody else.

    That sux

    I'm in the market for a new host, and was seriously considering Ventures Online, largely due to the positive comments I saw here. I'd be interested to see how this plays out - I notice the site is still hacked.

    I also noticed that I was unable to reach Ventures Online for several minutes this afternoon (timeout). Also not a good sign.

    Anyone have comments on Fr0zen?

    Yes, It's being overwritten, cause I replaced the file and my site was fine. Then 5 minutes later it got changed back gain

    I can't access any of those sites now, but I was able to access all of them a few minutes ago.

    Is it just me?

    VO finally shut down the server. I'm going to take down the list of sites since you can't see the hacked pages anymore

    And all the site's reputation.... What would the visitors think when they try to hit your site and suddenly see an "personal ad"

    Hey vesuve, I received your email about fr0zen.com

    I have been with www.fr0zen.com for almost two months now, and still haven't received any problems(lag time, downtime, or customer care). They pretty much reply to all my emails daily. As for their server, its very fast.

    You guys can check out my website at: www.animefantasia.com. My website is a pretty big news/p2p server site and it gets a lot of hits. Nothing that fr0zen.com can't handle =)

    Seriously though, I been with liquidweb.com, *****.com, remarkablewebhosting.com, and one other one. All of those host were good at first but after the first week to month, servers started to crash and their support sucked.

    The people at fr0zen are really helpful with my getting my scripts running when I needed help. They usually reply to everyone within 1-24 hours. Again like I posted on my old post, I am a web designer so I have two other domains with them right now and I don't have any problems with them. Just give it a try.
