    Been using these on a long forgotten site, I do bits of seo tweaking and experimenting on.
    8th December opened a ticket, as my site had been down 48 hours, never hear anything back.

    Followed up on 12th to find out what was happening - again no reply.
    This morning they emailed saying they had closed the ticket, despite nothing being done and my site still down.

    Service is a joke and their customer service is crap.

    They changed name to this ( or bought out the hosting company I originally signed up with ), can't recall the previous name.

    ahh okay now I understand :) Anyway feel sorry for you it is always annoying to get in the clows of such people.. some of them are just here to make some fast money and vanish! So they hope the number of new clients is always hire than the number they loose each month!!

    Right. I am curious how OP got convinced to buy from them in the first place. Even for a PBN site, Draculahost looks very unreliable.

    Yep Never seen them around before. Noticed you said Had. Who did you move to now.

    This is the issue in the Hosting world. You get guys that come in offer these cheap hosting plans. Get a few customers and then flake out time and time again.

    In the long run its better to pay those few extra bucks for a host that will be here tomorrow, and years to come.
