    A certain hosting company, who will not be named, has missed the fact for a year I was not paying for my hosting :D But they finally caught on. I got this email, about a year and a half from my last payment(I cancelled their service).
    I'm going to hope to send a little more spam off this server before they delete forever, as in three months:p

    Haha , If they are a professional company then this is bad because usually when you cancel a subscription, The hosting company should of cancelled the hosting also.

    They are a professional company. I'm not really sure why they didn't cancel. But I never got a bill which makes it even better haha.

    Did they actually send invoices at all - if they have they *may* be able to pass that onto debt collection (doubtful but depends on how shitty they want to get).

    If they haven't sent you invoices and you have a copy of the cancellation request then happy days....their fault, their problem :D

    Ha Ha Ha...

    I signed up with a company to learn affiliate marketing about 2 years ago and the $100 membership fee got me hosting, a cpanel, and a free domain name. I havent paid for hosting on any of my sites since then and my cpanel still works to this day.

    I do recall their old sales page saying something like unlimited hosting so maybe I am one of the lucky few who got to slip in to this free gold nugget.:p

    That depends on the hosting company and what level service package you're on. A lot of times for VPS or dedi servers you'll have to get things like cpanel, etc. on you're own.

    Similar situation,

    A company I also won't name has this current situation:

    1. I had 2x packages with them, with one overdue and the other not.
    2. They suspended both
    3. I kicked up a massive stink about them suspending an unrelated package, and cancelled the overdue one (I didn't want it and figured they'd just delete it if I didn't pay)
    4. The one I still have is VERY overdue, and they haven't suspended it or informed me :)

    That is completely the hosting companies problem hahahaha. If they can't inform you of anything or send the correct invoice, then that is surly their loss. hahaha
