    i bought a domain from namecheap, and i used 123systems (net) for my hosting because they offer $1 for a 1 year hosting service, cheap right?

    but yesterday namecheap suspend my website because of phishing ,
    123systems put something like this

    mydomain(dot)com/banks/login/index

    and now i can't access my Cpanel in my hosting account, and they refuse to answer my emails.
    so be careful using that hosting site.

    You paid one Dollar. For one year. Did you expect quality?

    I don't think they would of hacked you themselves - although they don't have the best history in hosting. However, for a dollar what do you expect. The day when people realise that basing everything they do on price isn't the best thing the better - pay peanuts, get monkeys.

    Do yourself a favour next time and do some research on the business before spending a cent - due diligence is to be done on everything.

    **EDIT**
    I would guess your site has an exploit in it (Wordpress or something with a nulled template perhaps?) or, due to the 'quality' of the hosting company you went with, someone else on the server got hacked and got access to the whole server.

    Their service is also same as their prices, CHEAP. Tested hosting a site with them a year ago and was not a good experience. Try to stay way
