    Anyone else having issues? This cost me my whole days worth of money. Very disappointed. Going to just switch to hostgator/namecheap hosting once this comes back up and pay a bit.

    You just learned a HARD lesson my friend.

    Once you build out a site, you need to make a master back up and then regularly schedule backups as you add content.

    I use a number of platforms to build sites and most of them have desktop backups.

    For WordPress, some people use ManageWP, but that is not cost effective IMHO. One tool that I find that works great is the BackUp Buddy plugin setup.

    I've moved sites to a new host with BUB in a matter of five minutes.

    Again, you need to set up a sure fire back up system that you can launch at a moment's notice. You could have had those sites up and running by now.

    At any rate, I hope you recover quickly and one last thing, check out HostTheName on BHW, for a potential webhost. You'll be surprised.

    Thanks, I'll look into them.

    Would you recommend hostgator or any other hosting company? I've heard that getting hosting from where your domains are located is not a good idea.

    True! Never mix your hosting and domain name registrar, EVER!!!!

    I have had accounts with Hostgator since 2006 and have never had an issue with them ever.

    Hopefully that won't change since they have been sold.
