    message in their cpanel:

    ofcourse i couldn't find any of my blogs/files/sites on the ftp. all folders are empty, my business is down!

    besides that just look what this moron write:

    Surely that is their fault? Have you looked through their terms and conditions? Make up some fake earnings pages with adsense or something and invoice them :p

    Wow! That blows! I guess you don't keep dB backups on your local machine?

    Man that really sucks... I can't think of much things worse - just before fucking chrismas! A good lesson to backup everything. Checking your account in the middle of the night and noticing something like happening would be damn harsh.

    Let them compensate you somehow. Also, don't make excuses for them. Switch hosts.

    Thanks for the kick in the ass. Today is now officially "Backup all websites day".

    I hope they can get those from a backup for you.
