Just got this from Media30 about 10 minutes ago...
We have decided to close media30.co.uk down due to side effects of the recent attack on the vaserv infrasture which have taken down things such as DNS servers. As such we are giving 2 (two) weeks notice to ask people to move domains etc. The media30 server will be turned off on the 5th July 2009. If you have questions/comments/requests please email [email protected] or [email protected].
Just in case its of any interest to anyone, I have 8 domains with them, looks like I am going to have to find new hosting :-(
It's a shame to here, but I for one saw it coming after the last couple of weeks. Poor Rus has been under so much pressue and I can't say I blame him, there's probably still so much work to do with the other VAServ brands, and they can only do so much. Media30 has had the feeling of "neglect" for the past few weeks, and as a result of this, I had already made plan's to move the couple of websites I have hosted with them, out. I actually signed up with GeekSRV last night to throw across my websites, and this happens today, perfect timing lol!

I praise Media30 for at least notifying clients of their closure, rather than just deleting your valuable data. Good luck finding a new host though.
I too agree. Many of the hosts won't do this. And we have seen so many clients complaining about even not being informed about the shut down in advance. In that sense this is much more better. Sad to see hosting companies stopping business.
Thats to bad that Media 30 is closing its doors. It might feel as a burden to you now having to find a different company but, at least they took the time and warned you what was happening. Best of luck to you!
