    So i posted earlier, that my host is not responding to me, but i still continued with him considering the event, he did that in past too, but since last night, my hosting is down, and i am now in kind of bad situation, as i charge money from my clients for publishing PRs of their clients, and seems like i have to do a lot of refunds, good thing is its down on weekends so it will not affect their business interests.

    lesson learned: while doing business, keep personal relations yard away.

    Are you still able to access your c/panel or is it all gone? I'm no expert with the way back machine, have you thought of trying that, maybe another member who is more knowledgeable on that could show you how to recover your site

    Happened to me when I bought my first hosting. It was an offshore hosting and there was a BST on BHW too. Many people lost their sites because of that. It sucks.

    The old hosting guy closed his BST here.
