This forum has helped me choose four great web hosts, so I thought I'd give some info. back :-)
A word of warning about a bad hosting company: JaguarPC.com Since they took over my AletiaHosting.com account (JaguarPC bought Aletia this year) I have had nothing but trouble... Scripts spontaneously becoming corrupt multiple times... Some of which I can fix, however for those that I can't JaguarPC's support service has been slow and is amateur when they do get around to replying.
My advice: Steer well clear of this shower. You can do much better for less money.... Such as 5DollarHosting.com and AlwaysWebHosting.com... Both of which I used (5DollarHosting for 3 trouble free years) and can recommend... low prices, quality support while site trouble and downtime is very rare.
Sorry to hear that.
It is quite expected to face troubles when a host is aquired by another host although there is often no problem at all.
However, as a nearing 2 years old customer of JaguarPC, I can't say they are bad, and I won't say they are perfect,either.
I've faced considerable amount of mySQL database problems in the past but these things happen.
