5 years a go I was noob enough to set up a website with 1&1. Over the years I've upgraded to a VPS with them to host a few short term or small websites. A few months ago my websites just stopped working about 6 of them in total. I tried sending a few emails to what I thought was a support email but didn't get a response, I tried the same email again a few weeks ago but still nothing, I've also sent a few messages to their Facebook but they haven't responded. The websites wasn't that important anymore so didn't have back ups or anything. I learned a few years ago to host more important websites with better companies, but would like to get these lesser important websites back for portfolios etc but 1&1 aren't responding at all, the only way left is to phone but the number they have listed isn't freephone and I'm not paying them extra to get my websites working which should be working anyway. If anybody knows anything about hosting the error I get is PDOException: SQLSTATE[HY000]  Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket 'mysql/mysql.sock' (2) in lock_may_be_available() When I try to log into Plesk on the VPS I get a 503 error.
