    what's ironic is that i was just zipping my files so that i could move to another host and the server went offline in the middle.

    No, I'm good on all accounts. Must be your particular server which is small consolation to you.

    If you are making serious money I recommend having several hosting providers so you can divert traffic in the event of an server outage. Putting all of your eggs in one basket is dangerous particularly with the number of DDoS attacks going on. Also make sure that secondary hosting company is not owned by the same corporate parent since there has been a lot of consolidation among hosting companies over the past few years. It's also better for SEO purposes if you want to link multiple sites.

    Still down here.

    Definitely time for a new host.

    I "like" how they disabled the live chat, although I can understand why.
