    That's a one time problem in 2 years of providing hosting services, and I have to disagree with you on not caring, if we didn't care we wouldn't have worked for over 48 hours non stop with changing shifts and hiring extra help to get all the sites setup on the crashed server and also compensate all clients for the downtime.

    I understand your position since you only signed up one day before the server crash, I deeply apologize if we caused you any loss.

    Every company has a problem every now, even the big guys with DataCenters...Dednow, Nocster..etc..it's just how the business world goes..you can't have all your days up..you've gotta have a day down..we had our day down..and if it's only this one in 2 years..then I guess we won't be having another one for quite a long time..hopefully

    I disagree to some points. You and other hosting companies were not prepared. No raid controls, etc. To help prevent HD failures. Yes these cost money, but in the long run like the other day, who gives a rats ass if an HD goes out I got 1, 2, 3 more with them same data and still running. There are number of solutions to prevent what happend in that HD failure. Your comapny did not want to spend this extra money upfront. Other companies who had failures last week are now spending that money to make sure an HD does not knock them down for 2 days.

    You say all big companies, Microsoft, Yahoo, Ebay, huge database, they are not down for 2 days. You out of your mind 48 hours is unexceptble in any book if you have customers and credit cards, and financial accounts on servers.

    There are lots of resellers popping up every day. Prices are cheap, why the Hardware is entry servers or one level up. I think time will come when out of home operations, and fly by night will decrease.

    You get what you pay for in this market, and it is true. I have leraned the hardway. I have made sure my server has a RAID with 3 HDs. and backup server. Sure more money, but I lost just as much as it cost for the extras. while down for 3+ days.

    There is down time for every one, minutes or an hour, not days. Come on, lets get real here. You actually are happy with only beenig down for 2 days out of 2 years if that is true, dout it. Anyways, it is nice to know that my company will suffer losses ever 2 years with you, nice business plan there chief. The objective is no business loses at whatever cost.

    Of course we're not happy with being down for 2 days, I'm only trying to point out that this is not a usual incident within our business in fact it's the first incident.

    You are correct about not being fully prepared for this kind of problem. The backup HDD we had was on the same server, which proved to be a wrong strategy.

    That's why we purchased extra servers just for the sake of backup and for emergency transfers.

    We all learn from our mistakes, you have now a great backup plan.. we have made preparations too.

    We weren't down as a company for 2 days, one of our servers was down

    Anyhow, we once again apologize for the trouble we've caused for your business and wish you all the best with your hosting company.
